Traffic traveling westbound on the 10 freeway was completely stopped Saturday afternoon while Santa Monica police and fire department officials attempted to stop a person from jumping onto the road from an off-ramp sign above the freeway.

The potential jumper stood on the freeway’s off-ramp sign near the 4th Street. Traffic stretched past the 23rd street exit and cars could not exit onto Lincoln because it was closed at the off-ramp.

The man eventually left the freeway sign and was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
