2018-37994 – This morning at approximately 9:15 a.m., officers responded to a welfare concern in the area of SH 146 and West Main regarding a female who may have jumped off the overpass. Upon arrival officers learned that the complainant was giving her 35 year old female friend a ride from Alvin to a location here in Baytown. The 35 year old, according to the complainant, was acting strange on the trip and when they arrived in the Baytown area the 35 year old opened the rear door, where she was sitting, and was hanging out of the door. The complainant immediately began to pull over on the overpass of SH 146 Northbound over West Main. While doing so the 35 year old fell out of the car and as the complainant looked in her rearview mirror she observed the 35 year old go over the rail and onto the grassy area below, approximately a 15 foot fall. It is unclear at this time if the 35 year old intentionally jumped or if she simply fell over the rail due to her disoriented state from falling out of the car. The 35 year old was conscious and breathing at the time medical assistance arrived, however due to the nature of the fall and the disoriented and combative state of the 35 year old, she was flown to Memorial Hermann in Houston to be evaluated and treated for any injuries. There are no charges expected at this time.
