Man dies after jumping from Westminster overpass
Authorities are investigating the death of a man who was struck by several cars after jumping from an overpass onto the 405 Freeway in Westminster.
Police were called to the scene about 11:30 p.m. Saturday after someone reported a body on the south side of the freeway near the Edinger Avenue overpass.
Coroner’s officials have not released the man’s name, pending notification of next of kin, Westminster Police Sgt. Kevin MacCormick said.
The man apparently jumped from the north side of the Edinger overpass, between Newland Street and Beach Boulevard. Police suspect no foul play and are investigating the death as a suicide, MacCormick said.
All but one lane of the freeway was closed before the road reopened about 1 a.m. Sunday.
