BARTONSVILLE — A woman from East Stroudsburg died early Sunday, just a few hours hours after she fell from a bridge in Monroe County.

The coroner says Linda Serrano, 46, died just after 3 a.m. at Pocono Medical Center.

Authorities say a passing driver found Serrano about three hours earlier along the berm of westbound Interstate 80 in Bartonsville.

According to authorities, Serrano was able to tell them that she had been in a car with her husband on Saturday evening. They started arguing, and she asked to be let out of the car.

Serrano said she was walking toward Route 33 where it crosses over Interstate 80. She said she lost her footing and fell about 15 feet down to the berm of the Interstate in Monroe County.
