STRATFORD, Conn. — There was no sign Thursday of the 26-year-old man who crashed his car and jumped off the Devon Bridge into the Housatonic River in Stratford early Wednesday, according to the Connecticut Post.
Stratford police continued to search the river on Thursday without success for Tavares Harris of Florida, the Post said.
A statement from the Stratford Police Department called the case a "missing person/suicide."
At 12:06 a.m. Wednesday, Harris crashed his SUV into the protective railing on the Devon Bridge, also known as the Washington Bridge, Stratford police Capt. Frank Eannotti said in a statement. Harris then got out of his car and jumped from the bridge into the water, Eannotti said.
Police officers and firefighters from several towns initiated a search for Harris, Eannotti said.
The drawbridge, also known as the Washington Bridge, is part of Route 1 and connects Stratford to the Devon section of Milford.
