Daily Outrage: Driver goes more than a mile with hit-and-run victim still in windshield

WHO: Christopher Swiridowsky, 30, of Providence, R.I.

WHAT: Driving past a fender-bender on Interstate 95, Swiridowsky allegedly struck three men standing by the side of a highway checking the damage. Victim Jose Flores, 24, became trapped in Swiridowsky’s windshield and remained lodged there for 1½ miles, police said. Swiridowsky allegedly stopped driving only because someone was following him, then fled on foot and was later found hiding in his home.

HOW BADLY HURT: Flores has two broken legs and a broken arm, and one of the other men hit also suffered serious injuries.

WHAT’S BEING DONE: Swiridowsky has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident and was ordered to stay in jail for allegedly violating bail from another case. The car he drove was registered to his girlfriend, and as of yet, no defense attorney is listed for him.
