We now know and see exactly why traffic was horrible on I-580 this evening. At about 5:08pm, California Highway Patrol issued multiple alerts that all lanes in both directions on I-580 near High St were stopped. Apparently, the lanes were closed after a man had climbed on top of the overpass cage, threatening to jump. CHP closed all lanes as a direct result.
Well, it looks like the man made good on his promise and indeed JUMPED! Watch below.
The man who jumped was injured during the fall and transported to a local hospital for treatment. Multiple lanes were closed until about 6:10pm were CHP alerted the lanes had been re-opened except for the far right lane.
If "we need more mental health resources" were a video! SMDH Hope he gets the help he needs!
