Body of woman pulled from California Aqueduct after crash in Hesperia”

Family members said Xanthel Linares, 24, had veered into a guard rail before plummeting down into the aqueduct.

A 24-year-old woman who had survived cancer and a kidney transplant was killed when her auto crashed early Friday morning into the same aqueduct in Hesperia that claimed the lives of a mother and her two toddlers in March. Her vehicle was recovered just before 3 a.m.

Authorities responded to the aqueduct on Main Street and Escondido Avenue in Hesperia.

Xanthel Linares was traveling west along Main Street near Escondido Avenue just after midnight when she lost control, went through the aqueduct fence and plunged into the water, according to video from the scene and sheriff's information.

The department says deputies spotted the submerged auto, state aqueduct operators shut off water flow and a sheriff's dive team arrived. At approximately 2:30 a.m., divers found the vehicle about 1,400 feet south of the Main Street bridge with Xanthel Linares still inside. The body of a woman was found in the auto, the statement continued. Positive identification of the victim is pending the Sheriff's Coroner investigation. A third child survived.

Xanthel Linares is seen in an image provided by family members on September 15, 2017. In a statement to NBC4, the California Department of Water Resources said, "An investigation by CHP is underway".

The California Aqueduct carries water hundreds of miles from the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the Bay Area and Southern California.
