Deputies identified the Indian Rocks Beach woman killed early this morning after a one-vehicle crash.

Robin Smith, 49, was driving her 1989 Jeep Wrangler eastbound over Indian Rocks Bridge around 4:50 a.m. The Jeep struck a concrete guardrail and overturned, deputies said.

Deputies said a witness saw the crash.

“Smith then walked to the south side of the bridge, climbed over the railing and jumped into the water,” the witness told deputies.

Deputies and the Clearwater Fire Department pulled an unresponsive Smith from the water. She was pronounced dead on a nearby dock, deputies said.

The cause of the crash is unknown, deputies said.

The investigation continues.
