Davidson received transport to WakeMed with injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening.
Police cited Davidson for impeding the flow of traffic.
In the police report, it said that Davidson told them he was walking in the median but didn’t get good traction, so he entered the leftmost lane to pick up speed.
