15 freeway in Hesperia reopens after jumper safely talked down

HESPERIA, Calif. ( — The I-15 freeway reopened after a jumper stopped traffic and was safely talked down from the Main Street overpass.

At about 7:15 pm, a female wearing dark clothing scaled over the perimeter fencing and was hanging onto the fence over moving traffic.

California Highway Patrol officers started a traffic break in both directions as they attempted to reach the individual.

Several bystanders and deputies were on the bridge attempting to convince the young woman to come down. Within a few minutes, the person started to scale the fence back towards the sidewalk and was safely taken down.

By 7:31 pm, the break was released and traffic was allowed to start flowing again. San Bernardino County Firefighters checked out the individual before she was transported by CHP.
