Traffic along Interstate 27 and the Loop 289 flyover was backed up for hours on Thursday morning. At one point, the Loop 289 flyover was shut down. That's because a man jumped off the North Avenue Q overpass at U.S. 84 around 10:30. A white van traveling North on I-27 struck the man as he fell about 40 feet from the overpass. The man died.
At this point, it's not known if the death was caused by the fall or the collision.
