Driver shocked as man leapt into windscreen

POLICE have yet to locate a man reported to have thrown himself into the path of two moving vehicles on Pease St in Cairns.

The incident happened about 5pm on Sunday near the intersection with Murray St.

Ian Duncan had just left a service station and was driving home when a man, who be believed was running across the road in front of his car, suddenly turned and leapt at Mr Duncan's vehicle smashing into the windscreen.

"He then jumped and ran towards a 4WD but they managed to stop and then he ran off towards the caravan park," he said.

"It was a bit of a shock.

"I am worried he's out there hurt somewhere.

"Hopefully he's not out there injured."

Miraculously, Mr Duncan only sustained a small cut to his finger from the windscreen glass.

Police believe the pedestrian was uninjured but have not been able to locate him.
