POLICE were today expected to release more details about a man who plunged to his death on the M62 above Huddersfield.
The man, thought to be in his 30s, was found on the westbound carriageway yesterday lunchtime, immediately below the Brown Cow Bridge, which carries the B6114 Saddleworth Road over the motorway.
Police believe he had fallen from the 170-foot high bridge.
The man was taken to hospital but died of his injuries.
Police closed two lanes of the westbound carriageway for an hour and traffic faced long tailbacks.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “The man was thought to be in his 30s and it looks like he has fallen from the bridge above the motorway.
“Our inquiries are ongoing but may take some time. We hope to have more details later today.”
