COLUMBIA — A man was struck by a car at the intersection of College Avenue and Ashland Road.
The man had been tailgating in the CG-1 parking lot and was crossing the road to find a bathroom, MU student Lindsay Straus said.
"There were cars going both ways, and this kid was on the hood of the car, then on the ground, then jumped up and ran away," Columbia resident Tammy Byington said.
Straus said the man's nose was bleeding after the crash.
The man was taken to University Hospital with moderate injuries after the crash, said MU Police Department Captain Brian Weimer.
"I feel sorry for the kid," Byington said. "It's a really hard intersection."
The car had a shattered windshield and the roof was dented in from the crash. It was towed from the scene of the accident.
Byington said he was not the only person at the intersection.
"There was a whole blob of kids," Byington said.
Police at the scene would not release the man's name nor give a statement.
