ATLANTA (AP) - Authorities have identified the driver of a car that went into a suburban Atlanta creek as a 57-year-old Loganville woman.

WSB-TV reports that Fawzia Jamshidi was found dead inside the vehicle Monday afternoon.

The car veered from a road in Lilburn and the vehicle fell into the Jackson Creek Monday afternoon, Gwinnett County fire Lt. Colin Rhoden said in a statement.

Authorities have said recent heavy rain created hazardous conditions in the creek, and that the water was moving swiftly downstream from the area where the car fell in.

Several witnesses saw the car fall into the water and quickly go under.
