Man fleeing police gets hit by car, hops up and keeps running

SAN DIEGO — A man was hit by a car as he ran from police Sunday night, but that didn’t stop him from getting up and making his escape.

It all started when officers tried to pull the man over for speeding on Interstate 15, the San Diego Police Department told FOX 5. The driver wouldn’t stop and officers chased him onto Interstate 805, where he eventually got off the freeway at the Home Avenue exit in the Mid City area.

The man got out of his car and started to run away, getting hit by a car, but hopped back up and continued to run out of sight, according to police.

Officers searched for the man in Chollas Creek around 9 p.m.

SDPD officers did not catch the man as of Monday morning.
