Interstate-40 eastbound was brought to halt Monday morning after a fatal accident in Bellemont. DPS officials say a man jumped off the overpass at milepost 185 at around 7:26 a.m. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. ADOT says eastbound traffic was being taken off the interstate and allowed to go back on at the overpass, which caused a backup in traffic. There is no word on who the person was. The incident is under investigation.
