Truckers pitch in to foil suicide attempt

| September 23, 2009

In Overdrive‘s home base of Tuscaloosa, Ala., yesterday, several truckers pitched in to help police foil a suicide attempt on the I-20/59 bridge over MacFarland Blvd. A nice gallery of pictures from the scene show, among other choice images, police unrolling an inflatable catch device atop two dry vans parked under the overpass.
