CHINATOWN: Person Dies After Jumping Onto 5 Freeway

CHP immediately issued a sig-alert and closed all lanes of the NB5 while an investigation began. At midnight, one lane had been re-opened. The location of the body right under the edge of the bridge above appears to suggest that the person jumped. One Person was taken into custody on the bridge above the incident, however LAPD would not confirm whether that was related to the death of the victim. Anyone having thoughts of suicide is urged to call the National Suicide Lifeline which is available 24/7/365. Call 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
