RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - SEPTEMBER 17: Syrian refugee swimmer Ibrahim Al Hussein adjusts his prosthetic following a practice session for media in a training pool during the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games at Olympic Park on September 17, 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The swimmer lost part of his leg during a rocket attack in war-torn Syria as he was trying to save a friend injured in a bombing nearby. He fled the war to Turkey and eventually boarded a rubber dinghy to cross the Aegean Sea to Greece, where he currently resides. Al Hussein competed in the men's 50 meter and 100 meter freestyle swimming contests during the Games. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)

A guy in Indiana led police on a high speed chase Sunday night, but had to bail when he got to an unfinished bridge. He took off on one foot…

left behind his prosthetic leg.  And it was wearing a green Croc.  A guy who lives near the bridge talked to the local news about it, and says he saw the man crawling through his front yard.

Rybolt told news-affiliate WISH he heard what sounded like gunshots last night around 11 or 11:30 p.m. He and his wife didn’t think much about it until they saw someone crawling through their front yard.

“We were sitting in the front room and thought we heard gunshots, it sounded like to me, and then we heard all kinds of sirens,” said Rybolt.

The sirens they heard were from police chasing the suspect down 38th Street to the bridge. The suspect drove a SUV right through a road closed sign, up to the bridge where the driver ran out of road.

“It was a big old bang”  he said.

Apparently the driver didn’t see a portion of the bridge was gone.

“I thought they were up there trying to steal equipment off the bridge where they been up there working on it or something. That’s what I first thought,” said Rybolt.

Rybolt quickly changed his mind about the racket up on the bridge when he and his wife spotted someone emerging from the wooded area that separates his house from the bridge. Police say the suspect managed to get out of the disabled SUV and hotfoot it away from the crash and down the hill towards Rybolt’s house.

“He was crawling on his hands and knees, and he crawled on his hands and knees all the way through my yard until he got to the side fence,” said Rybolt.
