A woman has died after apparently jumping from a bridge on the Llucmajor motorway.

Police say the incident happened at around 7.30am on Monday near the exit for Coll d’en Rabassa.

Several cars tried to avoid hitting the body but one crashed into her then overturned, injuring the couple inside the vehicle.

Emergency Services, National Police, Guardia Civil and Firefighters are at the scene along with 5 SAMU-061 ambulances.

Two of the 3 lanes of the highway have been closed and traffic is backed up for quite a distance.

Once you become suicidal to that degree you've gone beyond rational argument - so there's no point any of us expecting the person concerned to logically work out the effect of the suicide upon others. She was beyond that rationale. That is why we need a concerned circle of friends who will look out for us and intervene early enough to prevent tragedy. Not always easy. We all need to be alert and offer help where we can.

Sad she had to come to that decision but more sad the people she injured on the way they have to live with her decision.
