GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 29-year-old woman fell to her death off a bridge as she tried to help people involved in a wreck in Greenville.

Greenville County Coroner Parks Evans said in a statement that Jessica Smith was a passenger in a car on U.S. Highway 276 and saw a wrecked truck on the road’s bridge over I-385 around 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

Evans says Smith thought she heard a voice calling for help below the bridge.

The coroner says Smith jumped off the bridge thinking the ground was just below her feet, but instead fell more than 20 feet to her death.
