Is it answer choice B?

Choice A sounds as though the brick was running.
Choice C sounds as though the speaker intentionally tried to hit a brick.
Choice D sounds as though the speaker's head itself was running.
Choice E sounds as though a falling brick was running.

Choice B has the correct subject ("I") for the verb ("Running"), and has the intended meaning.

Perfect example for modifiers.
"Running down the street" has to modify "I" logically. Eliminate A, D and E.
C changes the meaning.

Hence option B is the correct answer.

But in answer B, you didn't say something about where the brick hit you, like in the original sentence
