TILLAMOOK — Authorities say a 22-year-old Tillamook County woman on her way home from her boyfriend’s house has died after her car went into the Nestucca River.

The sheriff’s office says divers found the car upside down in the river 25 to 30 feet from the bank.

She was identified as Corinne Edmiston of Terra Del Mar, a community along the coast.

Sgt. Mike Zimmerman said Edmiston was reported missing after she left for home Sunday morning from Hebo, along the Nestucca.

Zimmerman said investigators believe that wet pavement and speed were involved in the accident.
