(Eugene, Oregon) - An adult male received non-life threatening injuries Wednesday afternoon when he jumped out of a moving vehicle along the Interstate 5 southbound lanes in the south Eugene area. Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers are continuing the investigation.
According to OSP Lieutenant Rob Edwards, on November 10, 2010 at approximately 2:45 p.m. a 25-year old Eugene man was a passenger in a car driven by his wife southbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 190.
The man, who was reportedly intoxicated, was being taken by his wife to a relative's home when he made suicidal statements and tried to open the passenger side door. The driver slowed the car and was traveling about 30 mph when the man opened the door, jumped out and rolled along the pavement. He struck the west side guardrail near the bottom of Exit 189 and received non-life threatening injuries.
The man was transported by ambulance to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend for treatment.
The right southbound lane of Interstate 5 was closed about one hour.
