According to Kennedy, he made a wrong turn onto an unlit road that led to a bridge and drove over its side. The car landed upside down under the water. He also claims he was sober. He claims he tried to save her. He claims his cousin tried to help him save her because he went all the way back to the party aferward and then they gave up and he swam a ways so that he could get to his hotel.
Kennedy discussed the accident with several people, including his lawyer, but never went to the police.
Kennedy ended up pleading guilty to leaving the scene of an accident after causing injury and that's all. He got out of serving two months in jail for it, most likely due to his "family" connections. Many say that he got away with murder and has served several terms as Senator of Massachusettes because liberals are soft minded as well as soft hearted.
Mary Jo Kopechne (the woman in the car) had not drowned. Evidence indicated that she suffocated in an air pocket within the car despite Kennedy's alleged repeated attempts to get her out of the car even though he had gotten out of the car. (I personally want to know how there was so much air for her if he had gotten out of the car)
Many details and investigations around the incident suggest that he had reason to kill Mary Jo - none can be proven for Mary Jo is dead.
Most evidence indicates that the man is a murderer and a liar and a complete waste.
Planned out and executed the plan to murder (kill, terminate, end the life of) a woman.
