Authorities in western Ohio say a burglary suspect traveling in a police cruiser used his head to break a window and escape on a bridge, then jumped to his death.

Dayton police Lt. Kim Hill tells the Dayton Daily News the officer transporting the suspect Saturday night pulled over after the man began banging his head on a rear window. Hill says the suspect went head-first out the window and dove over the side of the bridge.

Part of the bridge crosses the Great Miami River, but police say the man fell several stories onto on a flat, rocky area.

They did not immediately release details about the suspect or say whether drugs or alcohol were factors in the incident.
