French police are investigating what appears to be a murder/suicide in the neighbouring French town of Bellegarde.

Poudou99 French police investigate murder/suicide in Bellegarde
Last Saturday evening, a car on the high autoroute bridge over Bellegarde was seen swerving violently, hit a truck and then crashed into the side barrier.

Witnesses then say the two occupants got out of the car and seemed to be arguing. The 35 year old man then grabbed the 25 year old woman and threw her off the bridge – where she plunged 40 meters to her death. The man then jumped.

The two bodies were later found at the base of the bridge.
