DOT Workers React When Runaway Jumps Off Interstate Overpass


Construction crews working on Interstate 90 may have saved a life Wednesday afternoon.

They saw a runaway climb up on an overpass at Marion Road, so they took action.  They stopped traffic in one lane.  When he jumped, they tried to break his fall.  Authorities say the DOT workers then held him down, so he wouldn’t run out into traffic. 

One of the workers was treated for minor injuries.  The runaway went to the hospital.
