TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A car plunged into the waters near the Gandy Bridge early Friday morning.
The incident occurred near the Pinellas side of the bridge at about 1:50 a.m.
A News Channel 8 photographer drove by the scene and saw the vehicle upside down submerged in water.
When we reached out to the sheriff’s office, a representative told us it appeared the driver “ignored the red reflective warning signage on a road parallel to the bridge.”
The representative said three deputies responded to the incident, but did not provide any further information.
It’s unclear if the driver was hurt.
