BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - A man who’d just been released from a hospital has jumped to his death from a freeway overpass in Burbank.

City News Service says the 60-year-old was pronounced dead at a hospital Tuesday after he jumped onto the southbound Interstate 5.

Police say the North Hollywood man leapt around 7 a.m. and landed in the far right lane. He wasn’t struck by any cars.

Traffic was snarled for about 90 minutes.

Ed Winter of the Los Angeles County coroner’s office says the man had just been released from a hospital but it’s unclear why he’d been admitted.
