SAN ELIZARIO- A frightening moment Friday morning when a woman drove her car off the road and into a canal.
It happened on Socorro Road between Fabens and Socorro.
Police say 40-year-old Veronica Reyes was speeding when she veered off the road and into the canal.
Emergency crews rushed Reyes to University Medical Center.
Family members say she will be okay, and that she suffered a broken leg and bruises.
"It's not safe because my friend once crashed in here, and people have died and it's very dangerous in here,” said Reye’s niece Miriam Varrintos.
Police cited Reyes with failure to maintain a single lane and driving without a license.
