Agencies respond to possible jumper from new Ironton-Russell bridge

Crews will resume search today

According to interim Ironton Police Department Chief Joe Ross, a call came in to the Greenup County 911 Wednesday night around 8 p.m. that a person had jumped off the new Ironton-Russell Bridge.
“When we arrived, there was a car abandoned on the new bridge” Ross said. “At this time, we do not have any confirmation.”
Numerous agencies from multiple states joined in the search of the river Wednesday night, including a helicopter from Columbus. Many of those agencies from both Ohio and Kentucky will resume the search today.
With the call coming into the Greenup County 9-1-1, Kentucky law enforcement agencies are the lead on the investigation with assistance from Ironton and Ohio agencies.
No other information is available at this time, but if anyone has any information that could held law enforcement and emergency agencies involved in the search, they are asked to contact the Ironton Police Department at 740-532-2338 or the Greenup County, KY 9-1-1.
