Pedestrian’s Leg Is Found 160 Feet Away On a Roof Four Days After Fatal Car Crash

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.

But when officers recovered the vehicle, they failed to find the victim’s lower leg, which had been severed on impact.

Police returned to the scene on Thursday, scouring rooftops to find the limb.

They eventually discovered the leg 160 feet away, on top of an interior building at the storage firm.

The two victims, who are both 25, have not been named. The second man is in a stable condition and is expected to recover.

Padilla-Rodriguez is custody after being charged with failure to stop at a serious injury or fatal collision.
