The 88-year-old woman who was pulled from the bottom of a retention pond after crashing her vehicle into the water Thursday morning has died.  The crash happened just after 10 a.m. at the intersection of Thompson Road and Five Points Road. The vehicle lost control in a nearby roundabout, hit a telephone pole and continued into the pond.  Indianapolis Fire Department Battalion Chief Rita Reith said the woman driving was slumped over the wheel when she entered the roundabout traveling westbound on Thompson Road. An eyewitness called for help and stayed on scene to pinpoint the location where the vehicle went into the water for rescue crews.
