UPDATE A 24-year-old man jumped off the I-95 bridge over Westport’s Riverside Avenue late today, state police said.
He survived the fall into a commuter parking lot and was being treated for his injuries at Norwalk Hospital, where he was taken by Westport EMS, said Trooper First Class Kelly Grant.
Westport police closed off roads in the immediate area for a period but reopened them a short time later.
State and Westport police were checking the northbound vehicle the man was driving. One report said the car was at a Westport home where a domestic dispute occurred earlier in the day.
A person familiar with the investigation said the victim was a Westport man with a history of mental health issues.
