A man who was injured when he hung on to a moving car was in serious condition at the Medical College of Georgia Hospital on Sunday night, a spokeswoman said.

According to an incident report, around 4:45 p.m. Saturday, James Irvin, 28, of Kissingbower Road, tried to get into a Jeep Cherokee driven by Charles Hyde, 43, of Hephzibah, after the two got into an argument in the 1900 block of Second Avenue. Irvin hung on as Hyde accelerated, striking a Chevrolet Lumina and then a tree, badly injuring Irvin’s leg.

Hyde drove away, striking another truck, the report said. He later contacted police.

Sgt. Dan Carrier said the case is still under investigation, and no charges have been filed.
