DAVENPORT (KWWL)--  A man is dead after jumping over a railing and falling to his death.

Police were called to a Davenport parking ramp around 1 a.m. Sunday after a sexual assault was reported in the area.

As officers were investigating the area, they witnessed a man hit a van while backing out of a parking spot.

The driver then drove up the ramp to the fourth floor, and hit a police car and another parked car.  He then ran from the car and jumped over a railing, falling four stories to the ground.

The 25 year old man was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. His name has not been released.
