Hit-and-run Victim Looses Leg, Leg is Missing.

Imagine driving down the road and you see a human leg fall off the car in front of you.

MESA, Ariz. - It was a disturbing scene in Mesa very early Sunday morning as police searched for the driver responsible for a gruesome hit-and-run.

Police are also looking for one man's missing body part. They said the driver rammed into two pedestrians and then took off -- possibly with a portion of the victim's leg still stuck to the front of the car.

“It’s a sad day when people have no regard for human life -- to have been involved in what just could have been an accident, and leave them there to die,” said Mesa police officer Ed Wessing.

Wessing said two men, both 25, were crossing the street on Broadway, west of Country Club Road, at about 2:30 a.m. They had just left a bar located in the shopping center.

A car tried to pass another vehicle going east on Broadway, and that’s when police said the car barreled into the curb lane and plowed into both men.

One man later died.

The other is in critical condition. That man lost part of his leg, and officers have not been able to find the victim's body part.

“There's a portion of his left leg from below his knee all the way to his foot that is still missing. There is a chance that it is still attached to the vehicle. There's a chance that it could have dropped somewhere, but we have not been able to account for that leg,” Wessing said.

Police are looking for a teal Honda Civic with severe damage to the front. Both side mirrors are also missing.

What a story! Poor man. Driving along seeing a leg fall off the car in front is very surreal.

The two-door vehicle lost both side mirrors and was likely heavily damaged in the front end as a result of the collision.


Think it's a matter of time before they capture him.

UPDATE:
Pedestrian's Severed Leg Found 160 Feet Away on Rooftop

The missing leg of a man killed in a hit and run crash has been found more than 160 feet away on a shop roof.
Police in Mesa, Arizona, made the grisly discovery four days after the 25-year-old pedestrian was killed when a driver smashed into him and a friend, who was left critically injured.
At first they assumed the man had fled from the scene with the severed limb still attached to his vehicle.
But it turns out the force of the impact was so great it sent the leg flying 160 feet through the air, landing on the roof of an outbuilding at Uncle Bob's Self-Storage.
The crash happened early on Sunday morning, on the intersection of Broadway and Country Club Drive.
Police arrested the man who was allegedly behind the wheel, Jose DeJesus Padilla-Rodriguez, on Tuesday.
Padilla-Rodriguez, believed to be an illegal immigrant, had borrowed the car from a friend who tipped off the police.

I'd say the guy had one foot in the grave, but it was apparently on a roof.
