Man falls off Shave Bridge following crash

A man was driving on the Shave Bridge when he had a medical issue and scraped the wall as he pulled over.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A 46-year-old Yulee man is dead after he fell from a Fernandina Bridge on Wednesday. 

The Florida Highway Patrol says the man had a medical issue as he was driving a U-Haul truck eastbound on State Road 200 crossing the ICW Bridge. He ran off the road and collided into the concrete barrier. FHP says the man then got out of the vehicle and leaned on the barrier before falling more than 50 feet over the wall into the grass below. He did not survive the fall. 

FHP says no other vehicles were involved. 

Law enforcement officers spent the afternoon investigating and the U-Haul was towed off the bridge. All lanes of the bridge are back open.
