Wilmington police say a man was hit by a car that ran a red light, collided with another car, then drove up on the sidewalk. Master Sgt. Steven Barnes says 22-year-old Alex Ryle of Bear disregarded the red light at Seventh and Washington streets Wednesday morning and was hit by another car.

Barnes say Ryle's car went up on the sidewalk and hit the man, who was later treated for head, back and leg injuries.

Police say Ryle fled on foot, but was captured blocks away.

Ryle was cited with leaving the scene of an accident and three other offenses.
