A woman jumped to her death Wednesday afternoon from a bridge along Business Route 22 in Wilkins, township police said.

Police said the woman jumped from the Hall Station Bridge, located in a hollow between the Parkway East and Monroeville Mall, at 2:30 p.m.

A spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said the woman was 46, but her name won't be released until her family is notified.

Police said they were told the woman was a passenger in a vehicle traveling east when she opened the door and rolled out onto the pavement, ran across the road and jumped from the bridge.
