Crews recover body from car that fell from Ohio River bridge

Posted: Updated:

FORT THOMAS, Ky. (AP) -- Crews have recovered a body from a car that was flung from an Ohio River bridge near Cincinnati and went into the water.

The car went over a barrier after a 12-vehicle crash on the Combs-Hehl Interstate 275 bridge on March 15. Rescuers had to delay for days pulling the car from the water because of strong currents on the river.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports a crane pulled the red car to the surface around noon Saturday. Authorities confirmed the body of one victim was inside the vehicle.

Capt. Dale Appel, director of the Boone County Water Rescue Team, says said the car was surrounded by debris and is 90 percent full of silt and sand.

The body in the car has not been identified.
