Both security camera and witness statements indicated that the vehicle was driving in excess of 100 mph before it lost control, hit a median, and went airborne into a CBP secondary screening area by the bridge.
Local media also reported that the vehicle left a nearby 7-11 and started driving down Niagara Street towards the bridge in an erratic manner.
Fox News has walked back on previous claims that the vehicle contained explosives.
The identity of the occupants, as well as the reasoning behind the crash, remains unknown at this time.
