Northbound I-95 closed after fatal incident

Sunday - 5/12/2013, 8:10pm  ET

LAUREL, Md. (AP) -- Authorities say the northbound lanes of Interstate 95 were closed in Laurel after a person fell or jumped from a highway overpass.

Prince George's County fire department spokesman Mark Brady says the person was killed after falling from the Brooklyn Bridge Road overpass north of Route 198. It happened around 3 p.m. Sunday and led to the shutdown of the northbound lanes, which were later reopened.

Brady says the incident is being investigated as a possible suicide. No one else was injured.
