Police respond to bridge jumper

The northbound lanes of the Missouri River Bridge at Jefferson City were closed temporarily early today as police responded to a report that a female jumped off the bridge.

Police and emergency personnel were called shortly before 4 a.m. to the area of the Noren access point on the north side of the river.

Initial reports were that the jumper, who fell onto land below the bridge rather than in the water, was injured but not severely. An ambulance transported her to a local hospital.
