RICHMOND, Va. — Richmond authorities have recovered a man’s body from a car that plunged into the James River.

Media outlets report that crews pulled the car from the river Wednesday.

Witnesses told police that the car was traveling at a high rate of speed when it ran off a dock near Rocketts Landing around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Rescuers suspended a search Tuesday night because of poor visibility and returned Wednesday morning.
