A woman jumped or fell from an overpass Monday afternoon onto northbound Interstate 5 in Blaine.
“At this time we don’t know if she jumped or fell, but she wasn’t hit by a car,” said Washington State Patrol Trooper Heather Axtman.
Details of her condition remained unclear. Axtman said the incident remains under investigation.
Firefighters were sent to a report of a woman who jumped or fell from the Hughes Avenue overpass onto the northbound lanes a half-mile south of milepost 275 about 2:20 p.m., according to emergency radio traffic.
WSDOT records show the Hughes Avenue overpass at that location is 16 feet 11 inches high.
