A bicyclist is in critical condition after he was hit by a car and driven two miles while stuck in the vehicle's cracked rear window.
Police say 27-year-old Axel Inostroza stopped at his townhome in Pompano Beach on Tuesday and removed 53-year-old Craig Camlin from the car. He dumped the injured man in a wooded area behind a trash bin, hid the damaged 2003 Mustang to keep his girlfriend from seeing it and went inside to sleep.
The Miami Herald reports a landscaping crew found Camlin and called 911. He was taken to a hospital with spinal injuries, a deep gash on his head and a nearly severed ear.
Investigators found Inostroza Tuesday afternoon at a body shop after workers called them after noticing damage consistent with the hit-and-run.
