OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — Ocean City police are investigating a hit-and-run in which the person who was hit was the one who ran.

Police say 24-year-old Samuel Cribbs of Murrysville, Pa., was hit by a car early Sunday morning while crossing Coastal Highway at 49th Street.

The vehicle stopped, but police say Cribbs fled the scene. Police say he crossed against the traffic signal and rolled onto the windshield of the car that hit him.

Police couldn’t find him after the crash. But later Sunday morning, police and emergency medical workers were called to the scene of a hotel about five blocks away for a report of an injured man. Cribbs was taken to a hospital for treatment. Police say he appeared to be drunk.

Cribbs has been cited for crossing the roadway unsafely.
