January 23, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An unidentified man jumped over the retaining wall of southbound Interstate 95 in East Baltimore and fell about 25 feet onto heavily traveled eastbound Pulaski Highway, disrupting rush-hour traffic yesterday evening.

The man, who was not struck by any vehicles, suffered nonlife-threatening injuries and was admitted at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, said Cpl. Greg Prioleau, a spokesman for Maryland Transportation Authority Police.

Prioleau said a transportation authority officer was talking to the pedestrian on the southbound shoulder of I-95 about 4:45 p.m. when the man suddenly turned and jumped over the retaining wall.
