WICHITA, Kansas – A fatal hit-and-run crash took a bizarre turn Friday morning when the driver left the scene of the crash with the victim’s body still on top of the vehicle.
The accident happened around 7:15 near Central and Greenwich Rd. Police say the driver of a minivan, 67-year-old Mohammad Sarrafizadeh, kept going for more than two miles until he got to his driveway in the 1500 block of N. Krug in the Rocky Creek neighborhood.
The worker, a 32-year-old man, was doing work on the lawn of Hawker Beechcraft when he was hit. Police say he was wearing a brightly colored, reflective safety vest.
A witness of the crash followed the driver of the minivan to his home some 2.5 miles away from the crash scene.
Sedgwick County dispatchers received several calls from people reporting a car rolling down the road with a body on top of it.
Sarrafizadeh, a radiologist at the V.A. Hospital, was arrested and booked into the county jail last night. He is charged with failure to stop at an injury accident.
Neighbors in the area are stunned that someone could not notice they had hit someone and then drive with their body on the car.
“I think any two year old would know,” said Marsha Murray, a neighbor. “I mean we’ve had two year old’s call 911. So, you know, you would certainly stop and render help and try to get help.”
