Texas man jumps off a flyover bridge to his death

An unnamed man hopped to his death Wednesday afternoon from the westbound flyover bridge of Loop 1604 to U.S. 281 on the North Side of San Antonio, Texas.

San Antonio Police Department spokesman Officer Douglas Greene said the man had driven his SUV to the top of the bridge around 12:30 p.m., parked, got out and jumped off the flyover, landing on the northbound lane of the highway.

He was marked dead on the scene. Police shut down the flyover bridge and all but one lane for about two hours while they examined the scene, causing traffic to backup for miles. Both highways were reopened later
