CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

A camera attached to a nearby pier captured video of a car falling off the Combs-Hehl Bridge and plunging into the Ohio River.

Officials released the video on Friday, one day before rescue crews will attempt to recover the vehicle from the bottom of the river.

The recovery effort will begin Saturday at 7 a.m.

Four separate accidents happened on the Interstate 275 bridge on March 15. The vehicle, believed to be a red Pontiac Grand Prix, was pushed to the side and off the edge of the bridge.

Search efforts were suspended last week because of safety concerns related to the rising river. Heavy rain could still impact the current of the Ohio River. In that case, officials say, the recovery will be rescheduled.

The Boone County Water Rescue team will use a vessel, barge and crane to lift the car from the river, according to initial plans detailed last week. Divers will also attempt to located and secure any occupants of the car, should they be found.

Police have been contacted by the family of a missing person believed to have been driving the car. The individual typically travels across the bridge and owns a red, mid-2000s Pontiac Grand Prix – the same car model described by witnesses of the crash.
