A person was killed Sunday morning after jumping off the Coronado Bridge midspan, the California Highway Patrol said.
The person jumped into the San Diego Bay from the bridge at 8:06 a.m., according to a CHP incident log.
The CHP notified the San Diego Harbor Police and the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s office about the fatal jump.
A tow truck was called to the scene and towed away a blue Toyota SUV that was parked on the bridge midspan.
