WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police say a man was taken to the hospital last night after jumping onto the hoods of two vehicles stopped for a train on 5th Avenue at Martin Street.

Witnesses say the man appeared to jump on the hood of one car, causing it to drive off and throwing him to the ground. He then jumped on the next car in line. As that driver made a u-turn to get away, he hit the man on the ground.

Police will not charge the driver. They have not released the name of the jumper, because he is still in the hospital.

Investigators say the first vehicle involved, a black SUV, and the two people who were with the injured man were not at the scene when officers arrived. Any witnesses to the incident are asked to come forward or to call the Wilmington Police Department at 910-343-3600. Information also may be submitted anonymously through Text-A-Tip. Enter Tip708 and the information; send to CRIMES (274637).

    If he was or not? I would have put it in reverse after running him over just to make sure he didnt get up

    We need to know if beer wine or hard drugs were part of this situation. Or are we dealing with a sick mind. the story is not what he did it is why. So let us look harded into this story. I feel there may be more to this story and may take you into a different direction.
