IMPD is investigating a serious accident that involved a man falling off the hood of moving car Thursday night in the 8200 block of Township Line Road. 

Police say a verbal altercation between a 19-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man led to the accident shortly before 10:45 p.m.  Police say the woman tried to drive away in a Grey 1998 Toyota Camry.  The man jumped on the hood of the car to try to stop her from leaving. 

As she drove southbound on Township Line Road, he either jumped off or fell off the hood of the car, hitting his head on the ground.  He was transported to St. Vincent's Hospital and is listed in "extremely critical" condition, according to police. 

Police are treating the accident similar to the way they investigate a vehicle that strikes a pedestrian. The driver of the Camry required a legal blood draw at a hospital.   

Additional detectives were called to investigate any possible domestic violence aspects of the incident. 

Nobody has been arrested.

Traffic traveling through the area will be able to divert through an adjacent parking lot.
