PLAINVILLE, Conn. (WTNH) — A woman died after her car went over a cliff on Ledge Road in Plainville on Sunday morning.

Santana was the only passenger in the vehicle.

The Southington and Plainville Fire departments were on the scene Sunday evening trying to retrieve the turned over car and deceased driver.
