NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - Highway authorities say one person was killed and five others injured in a crash on Alligator Alley in Collier County.

A Florida Highway Patrol report says a car driven by 33-year-old Cecilia Renee Douglas struck another car Monday morning. Douglas veered off the road, went through a fence and into a canal. The FHP report says she was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

One passenger in her car received critical injuries. Another was seriously injured.

The passengers in the second car also received serious and minor injuries.

FHP says all the passengers were wearing a seat belt.
