Chris Duhon Hit By Car in Mall Parking Lot

I don’t know that there could possibly be a stranger story. Chris Duhon was nearly run over in a mall parking lot. According to the report by, it seems like a pretty trivial reason. The motive seems odd, but Duhon was hurt enough to the point where he doesn’t even remember the incident. Let’s hope he’s OK.

Orlando police investigators said a driver intentionally hit a man with his  car in the middle of a Plaza Parking Garage in Downtown Orlando around 7 p.m.  Saturday.  It turns out, the man struck by the car is former Orlando Magic  Guard, Chris Duhon.

According to the police report, Duhon and his brother-in-law, Julio  Hernandez, were walking on the level 2C of the parking garage when the driver of  a black Lexus started honking at them to get out of the way. 

Hernandez told police as the Lexus passed by, the driver rolled down his  window and some words were exchanged.  Then, police said driver stopped,  got out of his car and argued face-to-face with Duhon. 

Hernandez told officers that he separated the driver and Duhon and that he  and Duhon kept on walking and the suspect got back into his car.  As Duhon  and Hernandez got about twenty feet away from the Lexus, Hernandez told police  the driver accelerated towards them. Hernandez said he was able to get out of  the way, but Duhon was hit. 

According to the report, Duhon landed on the hood of the car and his head hit  the front windshield.  The former Magic player was taken to Orlando  Regional Medical Center by ambulance. 

Police said when they questioned Duhon about the incident, he didn’t remember  anything.  They said he plans on pressing charges against the driver of the  black Lexus if he is caught.
