July 30, 2018

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — Two Delaware men have been identified as the occupants of a tractor-trailer that went off the side of a bridge in Virginia.

Citing a Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel news release, news outlets report that 32-year-old Jervone Rakeem Hall was the driver of the truck involved in the Friday crash, and 29-year-old Christopher Fenner was the passenger.

The release says Fenner’s body was pulled from the truck Saturday evening, while Hall’s body was found 8 miles (13 kilometers) off Fisherman’s Island on Sunday afternoon. Initial news reports had said authorities believed the body in the truck was Hall’s.

Amid heavy rains, the truck had collided with a van, whose four passengers were treated and released at the scene.

Permanent repairs will be required to fix damage to the bridge.
