TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Authorities  closed down all eastbound lanes on Interstate 4 in Polk County after a man jumped to his death.

The backup was happening near the Polk Parkway exit. Traffic was detoured off the interstate onto State Road 559.

The stretch was shut down for hours, but authorities have reopened the interstate. The westbound lanes are moving at normal speed. There will be some delays still on the other side.

The view from SkyFOX showed a body covered up in the road.

Authorities told FOX 13 that a 32-year-old man from Auburndale jumped off the overpass and was hit by a truck heading eastbound.
