Baltimore County police are now investigating an incident that involved a man jumping from an I-695 overpass.

Officials received several calls for a jumper Monday afternoon. They say witnesses at the scene said that the man climbed over a fencing barrier and proceeded to jump off the bridge. 

They say the 22-year-old man then struck the hood of a moving car traveling on the outer loop. He rolled off the hood and landed underneath the car. 

The man was later transported to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries.
