A scenario that truckers can encounter on the road proved deadly for a 29-year-old Greenville, S.C., woman. She fell to her death early Saturday morning, Sept. 26, while trying to help out at a wreck.

WYFF-TV reports Jessica Smith was in a car that came upon a pickup that had crashed on a bridge over Interstate 385.

She got out and checked the truck for victims, but didn’t find any. Then, apparently not realizing she was on a bridge, she stepped over a guardrail and fell 20 feet to the interstate below.
