SAN ANTONIO – One man is in serious condition after San Antonio police said he jumped a wall divider and rolled down an embankment on the eastbound side of I-410.

The incident happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday near I-410 and Ingram Road.

Police officers pulled over the driver of a vehicle, who was traveling eastbound on the westbound lanes on I-410. Four people got out, jumped the wall divider and ran across the eastbound lanes, officials said.

Three of the people jumped the wall on the eastbound side of I-410 and ran down the embankment to the Circle K on Ingram Road, police said. One man fell down the embankment after he jumped, which was about a 20-foot drop, according to authorities.
