A 22-year-old man who jumped from the Lilly Road N.E. overpass in Olympia onto Interstate 5 in September has died, according to the Thurston County Coroner's Office.

Lane Neill died of pneumonia Friday night at Providence St. Peter Hospital, Coroner Gary Warnock said. Neill's pneumonia was a secondary infection caused as a result of the blunt-force injuries he sustained during his jump the night of September 11, Warnock added.
