Man hit by vehicle as he ran from police remains critically hurt

Authorities have identified the man badly hurt when he was hit by a auto on Interstate 65 in Indianapolis while running from a state trooper.

According to state police, Williams was a passenger in a auto that became disabled while traveling in the interstate's northbound lanes near Keystone Avenue about 9 p.m. Friday.

The officer noticed the smell of marijuana coming from inside the auto while talking to the occupants.

Medics responded and took Williams to a hospital where he remains in critical condition. According to police, the officer asked the female driver and male passenger for identification, and the man gave a fake I.D.

When asked to step out of the vehicle, Williams shoved the trooper and took off running. He climbed over the median wall and was hit while trying to cross the highway's southbound lanes.

State police released Williams' name late Saturday, and said they had determined he was the target of an arrest warrant charging him with child molesting. Police say the driver whose vehicle was originally stopped was detained.

No other information is available at this time.
