EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut State Police say a driver jumped from a highway overpass after his vehicle hit another car.

Police say the man was traveling at a high rate of speed on state Route 2 when his car struck the other vehicle from behind Saturday in East Hartford. The man’s car spun out of control and hit a concrete barrier while the other vehicle veered left into a guardrail.

Police say the 29-year-old man then intentionally leapt from the overpass. He received injuries not considered life-threatening.

The man was issued infractions for following too close and operating without a license.

The two occupants of the other vehicle were hospitalized in unknown condition.
