A driver fleeing from police Sunday night in San Diego ditched a rental car along Interstate 805 and ran across the freeway, where he got hit — then got up and kept running.

San Diego police started chasing the man shortly before 8:30 p.m. after spotting him driving a speeding car and running a red light on eastbound University Avenue in the City Heights neighborhood, Officer John Buttle said.

The driver headed southbound on Interstate 15, then merged onto southbound I-805 with police in pursuit.
