Body Found Along I-55 In Memphis
(Memphis) Memphis police are trying to figure out how a man ended up dead along I-55.
The body of a white male was discover by a driver under the Shelby Drive overpass at around 7:30 Wednesday morning.
Police say the body was found face down, but they aren’t saying how they think he might have died.
A medical examiner was seen examining a ledge along the overpass and even looking underneath the bridge.
The investigation along the side of the highway during rush hour did create a bit of a distraction for drivers.
One driver, who apparently slowed down to get a closer look, caused two vehicles behind him to crash into each other.
“He was probably rubbernecking and slammed on the brakes, and when he did I slammed on my brakes, and the guy behind me just plowed into me,” said Carrie Harden.
No one was hurt in the accident, but traffic was backed up for a while.
