A woman was killed late Wednesday morning after a fall from an overpass onto Interstate 5 in Tumwater, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The 58-year-old Olympia woman either jumped or accidentally fell from the Custer Way overpass about 11:45 a.m., hitting a southbound vehicle, State Patrol spokeswoman Brooke Bova said.
She died at the scene. The driver of the vehicle, a 34-year-old Wenatchee man, was unhurt.
Traffic was backed up for miles as the State Patrol investigated the incident; the roadways were cleared by about 1:15 p.m.
