Man Jumps from Cold Spring Bridge

Sheriff’s Deputies Discover Car Parked Nearby

The body of a 52-year-old Santa Barbara man was found this afternoon underneath Cold Spring Bridge.

The man, said Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Drew Sugars, had apparently jumped from the bridge above, though it is not clear exactly when. His car was discovered parked nearby along Highway 154.

The victim’s name is being withheld pending notification of his relatives.

Caltrans recently began construction of suicide barrier along the bridge, but a court order halted work for the time being. There is, however, a temporary fencing still in place.
