A driver following the red car saw the whole thing.

Phillip Case, Witness: "What caught my attention is when I saw stuff starting to fly in the air. And then I tuned into, 'Oh something's happening, slow down.' Then I notice a man laying there and a car taking off. And it looked like they were increasing their speed to get away."

The witness debated following the red car or stopping to help. He decided to make sure the victim was okay. The worker is in stable condition.

Authorities found the car on State Road 68 and arrested its driver.
