The car has also been removed from the river.
Sgt. Pete Simpson says investigators believe the woman was driving eastbound Wednesday evening on Marine Drive and either swerved or drifted off the road into the river, where the car ended up submerged.
She was not immediately identified. Simpson says the Oregon state medical examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
