ATLANTA (AP) - It was a nightmarish commute for Atlanta area
motorists Thursday.

A day after a man leaped to his death from an interstate
overpass in downtown Atlanta, police are trying to determine the
motive.

Authorities said it happened just after 3 p.m. when the
unidentified male jumped from a bridge on Courtland Ave. into
northbound traffic.

Police were forced to close several lanes of the Downtown
Connector, snarling traffic for hours.
