YORK, Pa. – A car veers off a small bridge and plunges into a small tributary that flows into the Codorus Creek in York City. It happened at about 5:45 p.m. in the 400 block of W. Jackson street near the Jessop Place intersection. The tributary water is flowing higher due to the heavy rain that fell earlier this week. The car was floating in water up to its head lights just under the bridge.
