7/5/20: A man died early Saturday morning after jumping from a pedestrian bridge, onto the 10 Freeway just north of the McClure Tunnel.

The Santa Monica Police Department says that officers receive a report of a person down in the 1500 block of PCH at 4:40 a.m. Police say that they responded and located a male victim deceased in the northbound lanes.

Evidence at the scene suggests the man jumped onto the freeway and was dragged a couple hundred yards by a vehicle.
