JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Florida Highway Patrol released the 911 calls Thursday placed after a crash that sent a truck over the side of the Buckman Bridge last month, killing the driver.

The callers describe the scene immediately after the crash that killed 48-year-old William Maddox of Tampa on July 16.

Some of the callers describe seeing Maddox swimming near his truck before disappearing into the St. Johns River waters.

Maddox's body was later discovered in about twelve to fourteen feet of water.
