Baton Rouge, LA (PPN) – Police received reports of a man jumping from the I-10 Mississippi River bridge Saturday a few hours after noon.
A man parked his car in the westbound lane of the bridge and jumped off around 2 p.m., said Baton Rouge police spokesman Sgt. L’Jean McKneely.
DOTD posted on social media that traffic was backed up to Dalrymple Drive on I-10 West in the right lane due to a “stalled vehicle.”
The Coast Guard and EBR Sheriff’s Office was called to assist in deploying a search crew on the river.
This is a developing story.
