SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police say they are trying to determine if a man was hit or thrown off a car during a disturbance at a North Side gas station parking lot late Wednesday night.

According to police, a man in his 20s was trying to break a $20 bill with someone in a vehicle while in the parking lot. That’s when, police say, the person in the vehicle, however, took the man’s money and then started to drive off.

The man was taken by ambulance to University Hospital, where at last check, he was listed in serious condition.
