Authorities Saturday identified a 35-year-old man who died on the Glenn Anderson (105) Freeway in Norwalk when he fell off an overpass.

Multiple calls came in regarding the man – identified by the coroner as Arturo Marrujo — leaning over the wall near an overpass on the eastbound Glenn Anderson Freeway at the transition road to the San Gabriel River (605) Freeway at 9:15 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

A woman called in to dispatch to say she saw a large object fall in front of her car at the Hoxie Avenue offramp. She stopped immediately to avoid colliding with what turned out to be Marrujo, according to the CHP.

Officers and paramedics responded to the scene, where Marrujo was pronounced dead.

Marrujo did not have any identification on him when he fell.

Investigators are asking for anyone who witnessed the fall to call Officer Richard Reardon at 562-868-0503. Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
