VARINA, VA (WWBT) -

The body of a 40-year-old man was pulled from the James River Thursday, after a crash on the Varina-Enon bridge.

The man was driving a car which struck the side of the bridge. At this point it is unclear how the man ended up in the water. Henrico Marine Rescue is in the boats that responded and pulled the body out of the James.

Traffic was backed up for miles after the crash, which closed two lanes of I-295 south. All lanes have since reopened.

Female passenger was hurt and was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
