Man running from police hit on Capital Blvd. in Raleigh

Posted April 10, 2015

— A man running from police in north Raleigh Friday afternoon darted into traffic and was hit by a car.

Northbound lanes of Capital Boulevard just north of Interstate 440 were closed for about an hour between Trawick and Buffaloe roads.

Police were called to 3412 Capital Blvd. on a report that a man had punched out a car window. Once there, officers found Kendale Gerod Hill, 28, who matched the description they had of the suspect.

He ran. They chased him, and he ran into Capital Boulevard.

Raleigh Police Department spokesman Jim Sughrue said Hill was taken to WakeMed and that his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

Hill has a history of arrests dating to 2011, with the most recent coming last August, when he was charged with possession of counterfeit money.

    Maybe he was lured into the passing car by those black and white tiger print seat covers. The car owner should sue him for cracking his windshield.

    WRAL hoping so hard they can equate this to the SC incident.

    Why did the police have to shut down Capital Blvd? They were there and know what happened...

    I wonder if this will hit national media attention?
