Women Jump Off Icy Bridge to Avoid Getting Hit by Car
(Memphis) Three women are recovering from injuries after jumping off a bridge to avoid getting hit by a car.
It happened early Saturday morning during the icy weather.
According to police, a woman was involved in a car accident on Walnut Grove near Humphreys Blvd. She lost control of her car and struck another vehicle that had also been involved in a separate crash.
Two other women stopped to help when someone hit a car nearby.
That sent the vehicle sliding towards the women.
All three jumped off the bridge and landed on the frozen ground below.
Two of the victims were taken to The Med in critical condition.
The third woman was taken to Baptist East for treatment.
The crashes are still under investigation.
