car plunges into river after crash on Dames Point Bridge

A car was pulled out of the St. Johns River on Sunday morning after the vehicle went over the side of the concrete wall of the Dames Point Bridge after a crash Saturday night with another car in the southbound lanes, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The accident took place around 8:45 p.m. on Saturday.

Troopers said the 27-year-old driver of the vehicle that went over the side was able to leave his vehicle and had only small injuries. The vehicle landed in only about 5-6 feet of water.

The second driver was reportedly unharmed.

All southbound lanes on I-295 were shut for an hour while the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department got the driver out of the water and police cleared the scene. All lanes resumed around 9:40 p.m. Saturday.

The next morning, the vehicle that went off the side of the bridge was pulled from the water.
