A Spartanburg County man died Sunday after intentionally stepping off a bridge over I-85, according to an investigator with the Spartanburg County Coroner’s Office.

Investigator Rusty Clevenger said three witnesses saw the man step off of the bridge and land in the emergency lane of I-85. Clevenger said the man’s identity is currently unknown because he had no personal identification with him.

Clevenger said there is a homeless area not too far from the scene of the incident and that finger prints will be used to identify the man.
