Swiridowsky hit the people around 1:35 am on Sunday after the victims had pulled over on the side of the road to deal with an unrelated accident. Swiridowsky continued on his way with Jose Flores, 24, impaled on his windshield while being pursued by another driver. He stopped and ran on foot only to be found hiding in his closet at his home.
Flores has thus far survived, but he has two broken legs and a broken arm. Efron Trinidad, 28, is also in critical condition and a third person, Michael Abrams, was released after being treated.
To make matters worse, Swiridowsky is wanted on two other warrants, one for failing to appear in a Superior Court drug case, and one charging him with embezzlement.
Incredibly, this is not unique as a case, here and here and http://jonathanturley.org/2008/07/23/columnist-robert-novak-accused-of-a-hit-and-run-in-washington/.
