CLERMONT, Fla. — A 20-year-old man survived a 40-foot fall with minor injuries during a police pursuit this week in Clermont.

The fall took place after Brian Nicholas Hall ran from a traffic stop but failed to notice -- in the dark -- a 40-foot drop on the other side of a retention wall in front of him as police warned him to stop running. Hall was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center for his injuries.

The traffic stop occurred just after 1 a.m. Monday as a vehicle Hall was riding in was traveling west on Oakley Seaver Boulevard . An officer noticed the license tags on the vehicle had expired and stopped it.
