St. Louis (KMOV.com) – Interstate 70 is open once again after a man jumped from the Goodfellow overpass into the traffic below.
The incident happened just 3 p.m.
Witnesses tell News 4 that the man walked onto the overpass, climbed a tall fence and then jumped 35 feet to the interstate below.
Vehicles on the highway managed to avoid hitting the man, who was seriously injured by the fall.
Emergency crews had the highway closed between Riverview and Goodfellow while they worked the scene.
