A person fatally jumped off a bridge over Interstate 5 in San Ysidro early Thursday.

Witnesses told the California Highway Patrol the person plunged from the Camino De La Plaza overcrossing into the southbound freeway lanes shortly before 4 a.m. The person died at the scene and has yet to be publicly identified, authorities said.

Some southbound lanes were closed in the area along with the onramp from Camino De La Plaza until about 7:45 a.m., according to the CHP.
