Daytona Beach, FL – Things are back to normal on Interstate 95 in Daytona Beach after a man committed suicide by jumping onto the highway from the Beville Road overpass.
It happened around 5:30 last night (April 18th), snarling southbound traffic for nearly three hours and forcing detours to nearby roads.
