Man reported injured after jumping from van in Elk Grove, police say

Elk Grove police report that a man with developmental disabilities was critically injured this afternoon when he jumped out of a van that was traveling on Bond Road near Crowell Drive.

Police spokesman Officer Christopher Trim said police responded to a call at 2:28 p.m. A white passenger van owned by a private firm that transports people with physical or developmental disabilities was eastbound on Bond Road when the passenger in the front seat, a man in his 50s, reportedly unbuckled his seat belt, opened the door and jumped out of the vehicle.

Trim said the man struck the roadway and suffered major head trauma. He was transported to a local hospital with critical injuries. It does not appear that the van struck the man, Trim said, rather the man's injuries were sustained in the fall from the vehicle.

Other passengers were in the van, but no one else was injured and no other vehicles were involved.
