At approximately 11:50am officers responded to the 5400 block of Interstate 5 as several calls came in to the dispatch center reporting that a woman had jumped from the 54th Street overpass onto Northbound I-5. Three lanes of NB I-5 were temporarily closed as paramedics, Fife PD and WSP responded to aid the woman who was struck after landing on the roadway. The woman was transported to a local hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries.
