COVINGTON, KY (AP) - Police say crews in northern Kentucky are searching the Ohio River after a person was struck by a car and knocked off the Brent Spence Bridge.

According to The Kentucky Enquirer, the person who was hit Friday morning had been standing outside a vehicle after being involved in a three-car accident on the bridge.

The newspaper reports fire crews in Kentucky and Ohio are searching the water aided by the U.S. Coast Guard.
