A woman apparently hurled herself off of the Sheldon Street I5 overpass in Sun Valley, where she was struck by several vehicles and died.Investigators said they were gathering the woman's dismembered remains from the freeway.

"All indications are we have what appears to be a suicide," said Los Angeles police Lt. Robert Davis of the Foothill Station. "The body is not in good shape. It's dismembered. Obviously we have a bad situation."

According to CHP, the lane closures were requested at 10 p.m. and remained in effect more than one hour later.
