Florida Man Hides Cyclist after Hit and Run

Destiny Baker3 years ago

Police have arrested a Florida motorist in connection to a hit-and-run in which the driver attempted to hide the body of a critically injured bicyclist.

Florida Motorist Strikes Cyclist

According to FOX News, motorist Axel Inostroza, 27, struck 53-year-old Craig Camlin on his bike, then continued to drive another two miles to his townhome in Pompano Beach with the cyclist stuck in his rear window.

After arriving at his home, Inostroza removed Camlin from his car and dumped the critically injured man in a wooded area behind a trash bin. He then hid his damaged 2003 mustang to prevent his girlfriend from seeing it and went to sleep.

Camlin was found by a landscaping crew who contacted emergency services – the man was then rushed to the hospital with spinal injuries, head injuries and a nearly severed ear.

Inostroza was arrested Tuesday afternoon, after a body shop contacted investigators concerned with vehicle damage consistent with the hit-and-run.
