The death of a 70-year-old woman on a Marco Island bridge Wednesday morning apparently was a suicide, investigators said.

Drivers on Collier Boulevard heading for Marco found yellow tape shortly before 7 a.m. and learned that lanes for southbound traffic on the S.S. Jolley Bridge to Marco were closed.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office had received a call about a "distressed person," and the incident became a death investigation, said Kristi Lester, a spokeswoman for the agency. 

Witnesses said yellow tape cordoned off a black four-door sedan on the bridge. A Sheriff's Office van for crime scene investigation was parked nearby, a witness told the Daily News.
