Auburndale Man Jumps From Overpass Onto I-4

The man, whose identity has not yet been released, jumped from the overpass at 7:07 a.m. today, the FHP said. He was struck by a Ford pickup traveling east driven by Sean Klotzbach, 42, of Dover. He was declared dead at the scene.

The crash closed all eastbound lanes of I-4 at SR 559. Traffic was diverted at the exit of SR 559 and allowed to re-enter I-4 on the eastbound on-ramp. This created a mileslong traffic backup.

FHP expects to reopen the eastbound lanes about 10 a.m.
