Man falls off bridge onto I-35W, lands on open-top convertible, dies


It sounds like some epic movie stunt performed off of the Franklin Avenue I-35W overpass, but unfortunately it ended terribly and wasn't much of a stunt at all. A man jumped, fell, or was pushed off the bridge onto northbound 35W Sunday where he landed on an open-top convertible. The man bounced off the vehicle and died at the scene.

The incident happened around 5:30 p.m. and police haven't released the man's identity. They are still unsure of what caused the man to end up on 35W. Police said he had injuries before he fell or jumped, but there were no details immediately available.

The driver of the convertible wasn't injured, police say.
