State Troopers said a man jumped off the I-65 bridge over the Tennessee River after being approached by Troopers while walking down the interstate near the Morgan/Limestone County line.
Troopers said the man fell 20 - 30 feet and landed on an area of the ground below. He was airlifted to Huntsville Hospital with injuries.
Traffic came to a stand still as authorities closed northbound lanes of I-65, they have since reopened.
HEMSI divers were put on standby but were not called out to the scene.
