HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Police and firefighters searched the James River Wednesday after someone reported seeing a person jump off the Pocahontas Parkway. A driver told a toll attendant he saw a car parked on the bridge and then saw someone jump off Pocahontas Parkway (895) near the Chippenham Parkway at about 9 a.m.
The fall off the bridge into the river is about 180 feet, according to Virginia State Police spokesman Sgt. Steve Vick.
While scuba teams searched the water, Virginia State Police troopers went to the home of the person to whom the car left on the bridge was registered.
This is a developing story.
