Artesha Toliver said she was driving just one car behind the crash when it happened: "I witnessed the vehicle going into the water," Toliver said. "I was driving with me and my son in the car and all of a sudden I heard a boom, and it was like a smaller car and a black truck was trying to get over at the same time, and the truck ended up hitting the smaller car, and the smaller car actually went as it was going on the left side and it kind of spinned and went over that way. Then the truck ended up losing control. And once it lost control -- there were other cars -- I don't know if it hit the other car, but all I saw was that the truck went over the barrier."

"It was almost like it was bottoms up and it dropped into the water," she said. "It was a black truck and it was very scary because it was one car away from me. Another car would've gotten hit but it kind of deterred and didn't get hit, so I didn't get hit as well -- me and my 9-year-old son, we were in the car. It was devastating to see the actual black truck just drop over the bridge. It was a serious sight to see."
