The body of a livery cab driver and his livery car were found this morning by police searchers. Yesterday, a Park Department employee saw the Lincoln Continental in Riverside Park near 69th Street and asked the driver to move. The driver drove onto the pier and off the side, plunging into the water. The FDNY said, "[The car] went right through the railing. He must have been going pretty fast."

The police had to suspend their search last night, because it was getting too dark and cold, but were able to find the car at 11AM. Reports say the driver was alone, and the police suspect that the driver was contemplating suicide. The medical examiner's office will perform an autopsy.
