Woman talked out of jumping off [Clarksville] bridge

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

A Buffalo Junction woman who threatened to jump off the U.S. 58 Bypass bridge in Clarksville was convinced not to go through with the suicide attempt Thursday night by first responders at the scene. The high bridge over Buggs Island Lake was closed for more than two hours around 10 p.m. as Virginia State Police and others negotiated with the woman as she clung to the bridge guardrail.
