Oregon woman set herself on fire, crashed car, removed clothes and jumped off bridge: cops.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A 39-year-old female driver apparently set herself on fire, crashed her car on a bridge and jumped 40 feet to a park below, Eugene police said Thursday. A 911 caller reported Thursday afternoon that a car appeared to be on fire from the inside, with the woman at the wheel driving recklessly, The Register-Guard newspaper (http://is.gd/ZBElBA ) reported. After the car crashed into a bridge guardrail, witnesses told police the woman jumped out — on fire — and began taking her clothes off as she ran to the edge of the span. Truck drivers tried to put out the flames with fire extinguishers and another person tried to grab the woman, but she was still able to jump, police said. “I am thankful for the witness who helped us piece together what happened and was trying to keep this woman from jumping off a bridge,” traffic Lt.
