Police are looking into a hit-and-run involving a Rock Hill man, his wife and his son.

The 43-year-old man was struck by his wife’s car on Mt. Gallant Road on the night of Aug. 8, according to a Rock Hill police report, but he managed to push his son out of harm’s way.

The man and his 20-year-old son were walking along the road when a 1995 light blue Geo Prism car pulled up behind them and starting revving its engine. The driver of the car was the man’s 39-year-old wife, the report states.

When the car began to veer off the side of the road and come toward the men, the report states, the father pushed his son into a ditch to protect him.

The car struck the man at his knees, causing him to roll onto the front windshield, breaking it.

The driver of the car left the scene and the man was taken to Piedmont Medical Center for treatment.
