Man crushed after falling off overpass

A man died early this morning after he fell from a pedestrian overpass in Hongkou District and was rolled over by passing vehicles, police said.

The overpass above the entrance of the Dalian Road Tunnel is about 10 meters higher from the ground with one-meter-high guardrails on both sides.

Residents living on Yulin Road, near the scene, said they first heard noise on the overpass then screams from pedestrians.

Hongkou police are investigating the case.

The tragedy happened at about 2:20am, witnesses said. The victim, about 24 years old from Anhui Province, fell off the overpass and had his head crushed by passing vehicles.
