Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Two people are dead after a SUV drove off the Blossom Street bridge Thursday night.

Richland County coroner Gary Watts said a woman was pulled out of the vehicle and taken to the hospital where she died.  Watts also said a man died in the car.

Watts has not identified the deceased.

According to an eyewitness, Daniel Bundrick,  a blue SUV headed toward Cayce appeared to put on its brakes and then skid into the bridge rail and went over.  "It wasn't like there was ice or anything, it looked like he hit the brakes and then skidded over, it was just crazy." 

The bridge is now open in both directions.
