Video: Truck Goes Over Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Recovery Mission Underway

Sad news to report.
This morning, a truck plunged over the side of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel.
According to WAVY, response boats and crews with Navy Special Warfare Command are at the scene.  A tow line has been attached to the truck to keep it from drifting.
Battalion Chief Amy Valdez of the Virginia Beach Fire Department told WAVY that the truck went over the bridge near mile marker 15.  At this time, it is unclear what caused the accident.
Only one person was believed to have been in the truck at the time of the crash.
“The driver was heavily entangled in the truck’s wreckage underneath the water,” NBC Washington reported.
At this time, the recovery mission is still underway.
No further information is being released at this time.
This is a developing story. CDLLife will make updates as they come available.
