Mesa County, Colo. -- At 8 p.m. last night, traffic came to a stand still for a brief time at 30 Road and the I-70 Business Loop after 28-year-old Christopher Eraker, of Grand Junction, was hit by car there. Multiple witnesses told deputies Christopher ran in front of the vehicle and appeared to possibly attempt to jump over the car. Instead, the windshield was crushed and his leg likely went through the glass. The driver and passenger of the Mazda Miata were very shaken-up, but otherwise reported no injuries.

When deputies arrived on-scene, Christopher was receiving some care from passersby and was shortly thereafter transported to an area hospital. Christopher was previously released from jail on bond, June 29, after being charged with criminal mischief, criminal trespass and criminal tampering.
