A car plunged into the Delaware River just before 6 pm this evening. It happened along Columbus Blvd between Market and Chestnut near the Pier 3 condos. Philadelphia Firefighters and Marine Unit were on scene assisting in the rescue. Police say a 36-year-old male drove a black VW into the water. He was pulled out of the river and taken to Jefferson University Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The male driver had rear ended another vehicle at 4th and Arch and was fleeing the scene. For some reason he lost control of the car as he came down the ramp from Chestnut Street to Penn's Landing and went right over the wall into the river. Two bystanders jumped in to try to free the driver by could not get him out until rescue arrived.
