WAUKEGAN, Ill. (AP) — An Illinois man suffered life-threatening injuries when he leaped onto the hood of a car and was eventually run over during a police pursuit. The Lake County Sheriff's Office said a deputy spotted two vehicles leaving a Beach Bark business around 1:30 a.m. Monday. A 19-year-old man from Waukegan was clinging to the hood of one of the vehicles and waved at the deputy for help. The driver, a 17-year-old girl from Winthrop Harbor, fled. During the pursuit, the second vehicle pulled alongside, causing the driver to swerve and stop abruptly. The man on the hood fell off and the driver then ran him over before fleeing again. Deputies eventually stopped the car using spike strips.
