PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland police said they believe a driver lost control while traveling south on Interstate 205 and went over the guardrail on the Glenn L. Jackson Memorial Bridge on Sunday night, according to physical evidence and statements from witnesses.

Police believe snow and ice on the bridge contributed to the crash.

The Columbia River is located below portions of the Glenn Jackson Bridge. Government Island is also below the bridge.

Police said no vehicle has been found in the river. No one associated with the vehicle has been found, either.

On Monday and Tuesday, the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office River Patrol conducted sonar scans in the river, police said. River patrol will continue searching for the vehicle.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Portland police officer Garrett Dow at 503-823-5070 or garrett.dow@portlandoregon.gov.
