A portion of Hwy 321 in Gaston County was closed Thursday after a woman jumped from a bridge.

The incident happened just after 4 p.m. at the I-85 bridge over 321. Police said the woman was taken to CaroMont Regional Medical Center with very serious injuries.

Drivers traveling south on I-85 and exiting onto Hwy 321, which is Exit 17, had to go northbound while the southbound lanes were closed.
