LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say a man deliberately sped up his car as another man clung to it.
Police say the hit-and-run occurred Saturday around 2:45 p.m. in the parking lot of an ampm convenience store.
According to witnesses, 29-year-old Keith Bridgewater approached a stopped Toyota Camry in the store parking lot.
Witnesses say the Camry then sped up, driving toward gas pumps as Bridgewater hung onto the side of the car.
The car then crashed into a yellow barrier and Bridgewater fell to the ground.
Police say the car fled the scene but an officer located the driver, 31-year-old Jesus Paez-Rivas, a short distance away.
Bridgewater remains hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.
Paez-Rivas has been arrested for felony hit-and-run.
It's not known if the two knew each other.
