A 45-year-old Woodinville woman was found dead Thursday morning inside the cab of a pickup truck submerged in the water near the Mukilteo ferry dock, according to the Mukilteo Police Department.

The captain of the state ferry Kittitas spoted the top of the truck Thursday at about 6:30 a.m., police said. Divers with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s office discovered the body.

A security video, recovered by the Washington State Patrol, showed that the vehicle, a 2000 Dodge Durango, speeded down the Mukilteo Speedway, drove past the ferry, maneuvered around a barrier crossing arm, and drove straight into the water.

The woman’s name will be released after her family has been notified, police said. The cause of death has not yet been released. The investigation is continuing.
