SIU called to investigate after man jumps from overpass

The Special Investigations Unit is investigating after a man jumped from an overpass onto the Lincoln Alexander Parkway.

The SIU, a provincial agency, can become part of an investigation in cases where there may have been a police officer on or around the scene when a death or serious injury has taken place.

Police closed the westbound lanes of the Linc between Upper Wentworth Street and Dartnall Avenue after the man jumped. They also shut down the Upper Gage overpass.
