A woman who died in a minivan that drove into the San Francisco Bay on Friday has been identified as 60-year-old Debra Crenshaw, according to the medical examiner's office.

The San Francisco resident was one of several people who were in the minivan when it plunged into the water from the Marina Green at about 5 p.m., police Officer Gordon Shyy said.

All but Crenshaw managed to get out of the vehicle, which eventually sank with the woman still inside.

Dive teams found the vehicle after searching for hours, but conditions caused the rescue operation to be suspended until Saturday.

The salvage team marked the vehicle with a beacon and an officer stayed at the scene.

The vehicle and Crenshaw's body were pulled from the Bay on Saturday morning.

Police were still investigating why the van drove over the embankment into the Bay.
