SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- This isn't a dramatic Hollywood movie, it's a man who got hurt while trying to stop an auto burglary at a popular San Francisco tourist destination.

ABC7 News anchor Dion Lim first obtained the exclusive dashcam footage hours after the incident around midday Sunday. San Francisco police confirm they responded to Hyde and Lombard Streets regarding a report of suspects breaking into vehicles.

Dashcam video from a witness shows a man run toward the suspect's vehicle and jump onto the hood. The suspect vehicle quickly drove off and the man was flung into the street, appearing to hit his head on the pavement.

A San Francisco police cruiser was seen seconds later driving behind the suspect vehicle.

The man was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Two male suspects in that suspect vehicle are still at large. Anyone with information is asked to contact the SFPD at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411.
