Philadelphia Police blocked off some lanes of Interstate 95 in Philadelphia Tuesday morning after a man fell off an overpass onto the highway.

The man fell from the South Street overpass onto the southbound lanes of the highway around 9:35 a.m., said Philadelphia Police.

Medics pronounced the man dead a short time later. His body remained in the right traffic lane -- under a white sheet -- for more than an hour.

As SkyForce10 hovered overhead, traffic could be seen backed all the way up to the Betsy Ross Bridge about six miles away as only one lane of traffic appeared to get by the scene.

No word yet on what led to the deadly fall.
