VALLEJO, Calif. —
Authorities reopened westbound Interstate Highway 80 in Vallejo Thursday afternoon after a man threatening to jump came down from a freeway overpass.
The incident was reported at 1:07 p.m. at the Georgia Street overcrossing.
Vallejo police Sgt. Herman Robinson said the man climbed over the fence on the overpass and was sitting on a freeway sign over the No. 3 westbound lane.
The California Highway Patrol closed westbound I-80 at Georgia Street, and firefighters and medics were standing by. Negotiators were called in to speak with the man, Robinson said.
The man agreed to come down sometime around 2:15 p.m. and the highway has been reopened, the sergeant said.
No injuries were reported.
