Man Crashes His Car, Jumps 40 Feet Off Interstate Bridge, To Escape Traffic Stop Meant For Someone Else

Police say a man on Interstate-85, apparently thinking he was about to be pulled over, sped ahead, crashed his car and jumped 40 feet off the freeway - all to escape a traffic stop meant for someone else.

The bizarre scene unfolded on I-85 North near Piedmont Road shortly before 1:30 a.m. on Thursday morning, police said.

Capt. William Ricker of Atlanta Police said officers were running radar on I-85 and attempted to make a stop on a vehicle for speeding, when the man sped off and crashed ahead of them. Then he got out on foot and jumped off the interstate, which Ricker estimated was a 40-foot drop.

He survived the jump and ran into the woods. Later on he turned himself in to the police. They found a gun and marijuana.
