A pickup matching that description was later found disabled, about a quarter of a mile away, with a flat tire. a broken side mirror and missing parts that were found scattered at the bus stop, Rodricks said.
A man had reported to police that a similar truck was stolen earlier in a carjacking, Rodricks said.
The injured man’s condition could not be learned late Tuesday.
The investigation was continuing, Rodricks said. — Bill Miller
