A woman jumped from the Williamsburg Bridge this afternoon and landed on a car on Delancey and Pitt Street, according to reports. (Update: These appear to be pictures of the car in question.) The woman was rushed to Bellvue in "serious condition," while police established a crime scene on the bridge. Her vehicle was left parked on the bridge, and authorities closed lanes in both directions. The Village Voice reports via a witness that the jumper "fell onto the window shield of an SUV on Pitt Street, right across the street from the fire/police station. When I walked by about 10 minutes ago she was still alive and was moving around slowly."
