Medical examiners have identified a man who fell from the Highway 126 overpass in Castaic nearly two weeks ago. 

Robert Redden, 26, of Santa Clarita, was pronounced dead around 10:25 a.m. Friday, Sept. 4, at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital from injuries he sustained in the fall.

California Highway Patrol officers investigated following reports of a person who jumped off the Highway 126 overpass onto the southbound lanes of Interstate 5.

The incident prompted a temporary SigAlert, with CHP shutting down all southbound lanes of the 5 freeway for approximately 20 minutes.
