A solid wall of trucks formed to help prevent an attempted suicide in Detroit early Tuesday morning, and it worked.

The Michigan State Police flagged the trucks between one and three a.m. The police requested that the driver form a line beneath the I-696 overpass in both directions.

The intent was to prevent the potential jumper from hitting the ground, or a passing vehicle, should he have leaped.

In addition, with the trucks in place, the police managed to talk the man down from the overpass.

And then, a member of the police force thanked each driver personally with a handshake for having contributed to the joint effort. Truly, such a positive result could not have been achieved without the wall of trucks.
