Police say a body found on top of a tractor trailer driving on Interstate 95 in Northern Virginia was the result of an apparent suicide off the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.

Maryland State Police say a driver saw a man fall over a pedestrian overpass and land on top of the trailer Tuesday afternoon. The driver called 911 and police in Virginia pulled the truck over on southbound I-95 near Lorton, about 11 miles away.

Police found the body of 38-year-old Jeffrey Matheny of Gaithersburg on top of the canvas-covered, open-bedded trailer, which was hauling waste products.

Mr. Matheny was pronounced dead at the scene. The medical examiner has ruled his death a suicide.
