Suicide From Bridge Over PCH
July 9, 2020
A man died early Saturday morning after jumping from a pedestrian bridge, onto the 10 Freeway just north of the McClure Tunnel.
The Santa Monica Police Department says that officers receive a report of a person down in the 1500 block of PCH at 4:40 a.m. Police say that they responded and located a male victim deceased in the northbound lanes.
Evidence at the scene suggests the man jumped onto the freeway and was dragged a couple hundred yards by a vehicle.
Suicides are said to have increased during the Covid-19 Pandemic and Lockdown
