New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — State Police and New Haven firefighters responded to a car that went off of the road on I-91 Southbound near the Exit 8 off-ramp and fell into the water early Thursday morning.

Officials say they didn’t find anyone in the submerged vehicle. Police officers were in the water for more than an hour.

It is unclear who the driver is or exactly how the car ended up in the water. A crane lifted the car out of the water around 6:30 a.m.

The I-91 South Exit 8 off-ramp was closed for several hours. The area has since reopened.

The circumstances leading to how the car ended up in the water remains under investigation.
