3000 block E. Washington Ave.


Male, age 26, Madison


A 26-year old Madison man was taken to a hospital Wednesday afternoon after witnesses saw him jump from the hood of a car into the side of a Madison Metro bus. The unusual behavior took place along busy East Washington Ave. during the peak of rush-hour, and just as many were traveling to Concerts on the Square. Citizens said the man appeared to be arguing with a woman. The couple had been traveling in a car, but it had stopped in the bus lane.  Police were told the man jumped a couple of times from the hood and into traffic, prior to the leap into the bus. His injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
