A Franklin County man died this afternoon after he jumped from the Lee Creek Road overpass in Van Buren onto the top of a commercial cargo trailer and truck traveling eastbound along Interstate 40. The incident occurred about 10:55 this morning.
The Arkansas State Police Highway Patrol Division, Troop H, is investigating the death of Dillon Allen Wynn, 26, of Ozark.

Wynn was transported from the scene by emergency medical personnel and taken to a Fort Smith hospital where he later died.
