The Richmond Police Department has identified the man who died in Tuesday's vehicle crash into the river as Barry L. Scott, 27, of the 1600 block of East Laburnum Avenue.

Detectives do not suspect foul play.

At approximately 8:40 p.m. on Tuesday, witnesses called police to report a vehicle that had driven into the river from the 3100 block of Wharf Street.

The Fire Department attempted to rescue the victim and recover the vehicle, but the poor visibility and strong currents forced them to suspend their operations until Wednesday, when the victim and the vehicle were recovered.
