FORT THOMAS, Ky. (AP) — Officials have identified the body of a man that was recovered from a car that fell from an Ohio River bridge near Cincinnati and went into the water.

The car went over a barrier after a 12-vehicle crash on the Combs-Hehl Interstate 275 bridge on March 15. Rescuers delayed pulling the car from the water for days because of strong currents. A crane pulled the red car to the surface on Saturday.

The Kentucky Enquirer ( reports the victim was identified on Sunday as David James Bouma of Milford, Ohio.

Campbell County Coroner Al Garnick says the autopsy report shows Bouma died from head trauma, not drowning.

Police say the crash is still under investigation.
