Posted: 01/22/2009 - A major Los Angeles freeway was backed up for miles during the morning rush because of a man who eventually jumped from an overpass. California Highway Patrol Sgt. Mark Garrett says reports of a man standing on a railing prompted officers to close all lanes of Interstate 10 in both directions for about a half-hour shortly before 9 a.m. Thursday. The Los Angeles Fire Department placed an airbag under the overpass on the eastbound side but Garrett says the man moved to the west side of the freeway and jumped. Fire Department spokeswoman d'Lisa Davies says the man, believed to be in his 20s, fell about 20 feet and suffered moderate injuries.
