Hao Luong, 22, told ABC11 he has some scrapes on his head and hands, but is mostly suffering from pain to the left side of his body.

Just before 3 p.m. Friday, Luong got off the bus on Gorman Street, and pushed the crosswalk button to reach his car on Kaplan Drive. When he got the signal to cross, he took a few steps into the intersection, then heard the sound of screeching brakes.
