Woman Plunges Onto I-35W in Minneapolis
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A portion of Interstate 35W near downtown Minneapolis was closed after officials said a woman jumped to her death during the Tuesday morning commute.
State Patrol Lieutenant Tiffany Nielson says a witness saw the woman climb a fence and jump from the 46th Street bridge onto southbound lanes at about 7:09 a.m.
Nielson says the woman struck a Honda SUV and was killed. The driver of the Honda wasn't hurt but was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
Two lanes of the interstate were closed as investigators reconstructed the scene.
