A 58-year-old woman was killed Tuesday afternoon after being hit by a car on the Northeast Loop 820 toll road, police said.
Witnesses reported seeing the woman climb over the side of the Rufe Snow Drive bridge and “hang for a short period of time” before falling into traffic, according to a police press release.
She was struck by a four-door sedan. Police believe it was likely a suicide.
The woman’s name had not been released pending notification of relatives.
Officers responded to the accident shortly before 1:30 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of the toll road, near Rufe Snow Drive.
Authorities closed down the eastbound lanes of the toll road as police investigated the wreck.
