Searchers are looking this morning for the body of a man who fell into the Sudbury River in Framingham after a minor car accident last night on a Massachusetts Turnpike bridge over the river, state police said.

A man drove his 2000 Honda Accord into the guardrail on the westbound side of the road at about 8:05. State police have determined that the man accidentally fell into the river after the crash, said spokesman Sergeant Robert Bousquet.

State police and local fire and police departments searched until just before midnight last night. The search resumed at about 8 this morning, Bousquet said.
