An Ardmore man was taken to Mercy Hospital Ardmore after a failed attempt to jump off the overpass on I-35 and Veterans Road onto some grass.

Capt. Eric Hamblin, Ardmore Police Department public information officer, described the incident as a medical call. The man, whose name was not released, said he was walking and wanted to get down off the bridge.

“He said he was trying to make it to the grass,” Hamblin said.

The miscalculation resulted in an injury and the man, who was identified as an Ardmore resident, was transported to Mercy Hospital Ardmore for treatment.
