STEVENSVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — A tractor trailer crash sends a car over the Bay Bridge and into the water. The car’s driver, plunging to the rocks below.

Pat Warren talked with investigators there at the scene.

At around 8:30 p.m. Friday night, police say a tractor trailer and two vehicles collided about a mile onto the eastbound span of the Bay Bridge.

The accident sent one of the cars over the side of the bridge and into the shallow waters of the bay below.

The driver, a 22-year-old woman, was able to exit the vehicle and swim to some nearby rocks.

A local boater then assisted her until emergency responders arrived.

The woman was first transported to Sandy Point, then flown to Shock Trauma with what appear to be non-life threatening injuries.

No other injuries were reported.

The vehicle still needs to be removed from the water.

Eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge are back open this morning.

Collision re-constructionists are on-scene.

MTA engineers are also there, trying to evaluate any structural issues the bridge may have sustained.
