OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Oregon Police and the Ohio State Highway Patrol released a 25-page crash report from a fatal accident that occurred Sunday morning.

Investigators are still trying to figure out exactly what went wrong before 20-year-old Bianca Bepler, from Canal Winchester, OH, was found inside a car submerged in Otter Creek on Sunday.

Police say the car had been submerged in the water for several hours because ice had reformed around it. They think Bepler crashed through the guardrail and landed upside down in the creek.

The investigation has revealed that Bepler was driving 60 miles-per-hour in a 35 miles-per-hour zone. They say she had her seatbelt on during the time of the crash and she was not using her cell phone, which was in her back pocket.

Police are still trying to figure out why she was in Oregon.

"We are checking all of the City of Toledo cameras to see if they picked her up anywhere," said Lt. Hank Everitt of the Oregon Police. "We are also reviewing our patrol cameras that went by there to see when the guardrail was up."

The investigation is ongoing. We will continue to follow this story and update it as more information becomes available.
