Body found after truck drove off bridge in Virginia

July 28, 2018

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — A body has been found inside a semi-truck that went off the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel in Virginia.

The Virginian-Pilot reports divers found the body Saturday morning. Officials believe a second person may have died as a result of the crash, because witnesses said they saw two people inside the tractor-trailer before it plunged into the water.

Tom Anderson, deputy director of finance and operation for the bridge-tunnel, says officials believe they have identified the driver based on E-ZPass records and witness statements.

The cab of the truck is about 20- to 25-feet of under water.

Anderson says investigators are still trying to figure out what caused the accident on Saturday morning.
