PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland traffic is being significantly delayed on and around the Fremont Bridge Wednesday as police deal with a potentially suicidal woman.

Police said there was a multiple-vehicle crash at 5:17 p.m. Witnesses said a woman in one of the vehicles then got out and stood over the ledge of the bridge. Emergency crews arrived to talk to the woman.

Southbound Interstate 405 traffic over the bridge is facing long delays as police deal with the situation. Northwest Naito Parkway below the Fremont Bridge is closed to all traffic.

Freeway drivers are encouraged to use I-5 southbound.
