Teen-aged Lynnwood boy jumps from freeway overpass

Sunday, January 23, 2011

Many of us were caught in major traffic jams on Friday afternoon because of a reported car - pedestrian accident on I-5 in Lynnwood.

Our NewsPartner LynnwoodToday reports that around 2:30 pm on Friday, January 21. a 14 year old Lynnwood boy jumped from the 196th freeway overpass in Lynnwood, onto I-5 and was killed.

Traffic on the freeway backed up 5 miles through Shoreline as Aid vehicles responded to the scene and police investigated. Lanes were opened at 5 pm.

This would be a good time to remind everyone about the Youth Suicide Prevention seminar being held at the Richmond Beach Congregational Church on February 17. See previous story.
