An 83-year-old man fell to his death off an elevated highway in Connecticut while trying to help a driver whose car had rolled over. Richard Herron jumped over the center median of I-84 in Hartford to avoid a big rig that was nearing the crash scene and may have not noticed there was a large drop. Connecticut State Police say the driver of the car that rolled was going too fast around a curve on the wet highway and lost control. She had minor injuries.
