The man who jumped from the Treat Boulevard overpass along Interstate 680 in Walnut Creek Tuesday has been identified as a Brentwood man.
The victim of the apparent suicide was Airnoi Saykosy, 32, of Brentwood. It is believed he climbed over the nine-foot-high, chain-link fence and jumped to the freeway some 20 feet below, Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jimmy Lee said.
At about 9:15 a.m. Tuesday, authorities received a call from someone reporting a person on the Treat Boulevard overpass poised to jump. The man did indeed jump onto the roadway. Three southbound lanes of I-680 were closed between highway 242 and Treat Boulevard. The lanes re-opened in the late morning.
