(Cibolo) -- The body of a Guadalupe County woman has been rescued from the flood waters in Santa Clara Creek located in Cibolo.

The woman has been identified as 58-year-old Shireal Boulenger.
Cibolo Police Chief Gary Cox says rescue crews spent hours on Friday looking for the woman who was washed away in a Chevrolet Caprice just off the Interstate 10 access road.
"She was located in the car and of course, she had been there since probably 1 or 2 o'clock this morning when the incident happened. So obviously, the chances of survival of that particular incident was very small and obviously, the outcome is tragic," said Cox.

Cox says her husband 68-year-old Ricky Boulenger was driving the vehicle when the incident occurred and was able to get out of the vehicle. The husband was rescued after being pushed by the rushing water into a tree. Officials say he's hospitalized, and is expected to recover.
"The driver did indicate that he was driving on the access road and then a larger vehicle came by and caused the water to go deeper than what it already was. The bottom line is that the road was underwater and really no vehicle should be on it to begin with," said Cox.
The Seguin Police Department spent the day assisting the Cibolo Police Department in the search efforts.
Cox says if it is found that the husband ignored the barricades, charges could be filed against him. However he says, right now, the concentration is on the loss of his wife. Investigation into the incident continues.
