A Pompano Beach man hit a bicyclist, who landed in his rear window. The driver then continued two miles, dumped the rider -- who was still alive -- in the woods, and went home to sleep.

Axel Inostroza, 27, tried to hide his black 2003 Mustang from his girlfriend. He was arrested at 2 p.m. Monday at a Pompano body shop.

The biker, Craig Camlin, age 53, was found in a wooded area by a landscaping crew. He was taken to the hospital and will likely be paralyzed.

Inostroza first told deputies he had hit a stop sign. He later acknowledged he had been drinking, prosecutors say.

According to police, the accident occurred while Inostroza was driving on the 5200 block of NE 18th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. After Inostroza hit Camlin, who was traveling in the same direction, the cyclist landed on the trunk and rolled into the window, which broke.

Inostroza drove two miles with the wounded cyclist lodged in the window.

Inostroza's only criminal background includes a disorderly conduct charge. Court records show his driver's license was due to be suspended for unpaid tickets.

A judge ordered Instroza held on $70,000 bond, the Sun Sentinel reported. The newspaper recently reported that accidents with bicyclists have spiked since 2010 -- increasing 42 percent between 2010 and 2012.

Well, going off on the heinous manner in which the cover up is kind of pointless at this juncture. Let's learn from this ? Accident happened at 6:30 AM from prior news stories, it's still very dark at that hour. Was the road well lighted ? Cyclist, what was he wearing to be seen ? Bike lights ? 5200 Block of NE 18th Ave in Ft. Lauderdale, google street view shows only one side of the street has lighting. The middle of the street has palm trees and a grassy divider, lighting may be very poor on the unlit side of the street ? No bike lane on either side, 2 car lanes on each side. Sunrise/Sunset calculator indicates a 7 AM sunrise and 5:31 PM sunset for Sunday Dec 15, 2013. Since the Solstice is coming up this Saturday, these are the shortest days for sunlight of the year. Not excusing or finding blame on the cyclist, but each of us really has to evaluate whether being out at that hour is really necessary vs weighing the dangers of not being seen ?

Hopefully one day a cyclist will be able to defend himself when a drunk hits him.

Is Axel a US Citizen, or just here for an extended stay?   Why don't newspapers start keeping track of who these fecal pieces are , and if they should be here in the first place.

What a piece of human garbage. I hope they throw the book at him. The intent was for the cyclist to die, as a dead person can't tell who hit them. Disgusting!

Hey fake profile Mr. Donnie Danger it is the tourists and transplants from Northeast using GPS to find a purpose in life, (re-routing) that are the folks I cutoff on 836 daily. More likely you might have forgotten the Nica from a donkey village.

@jgcamp99 What if the guy is trying to get to work? How does he have a choice? I don't think you have thought your response out very well.

Add, this is up in the Commercial Blvd area, just North of it a block or two. There is a shared 5th/turn lane in the middle that is occasionally broken up by the grassy islands with palm trees. Apartments on one side that has street lighting, houses on the other side, not exactly your safest neighborhood for traffic ?

You're an ignaramous. Is she from Spain because you indicate she is Spanish? Spanish is a language. Maybe you mean she is hispanic as that is a type of race. Good luck to whatever city gets you as I'm sure you will be bringing a lot of class with you...only problem is, that it's low class.

in most cities cyclists have to obey the same laws on the road as motor vehicle operators. we don't simply get the right of way. the same way a car would have right of way in certain situations is how we would have right of way. the biggest problem is people just not knowing even basic vehicle laws. in most areas bikes are ruled as vehicles. unless there are signs, in black and white which usually establishes a legal requirement, that forbid a bike on certain streets, usually we have the same legal right to travel that road.

So you think you belong in a "sophisticated" city.

That's because you are "sophisticated," right?

So, you're the one that self admittedly cuts other motorists off ? Are you also the one that doesn't know what a 2-3+ second safe following distance is when you tailgate others like you're in a NASCAR race ? What times are you commuting and your route ? That way I don't have to be out there with at least you. I don't ever want to meet you in my lifetime, not intentionally nor by accident. And as long as you're going to be on the road, the rest of us need to be warned of your position and direction, that you are an aggressive driver and road rager. I don't care so much about you but I need to know where you are. You're simply not worth being in the vicinity of, too much at stake and this has nothing to do with concern for your safety or benefit whatsoever. I also don't want to have to be delayed by the aftermath of your irresponsible driving habits.

stopped and called the police? How would he know he was going to be hit by the guy? ESP? You can't be that dumb...

Oh? So just because SOME cyclists don't respect the road rules it's ok to hit them with your car and drive away like nothing happened? I for one STOP at stop signs, I signal my turns and generally make my intentions KNOWN to the rest of the vehicles and drivers SHARING THE ROAD with me!! Just this morning I was out on my 20 mile route, approaching an intersection where the crosstraffic has a STOP sign and I do not. There's this pickup truck at the stop sign, I'm approaching at about 18mph and when I'm less than 5 yards from the intersection the MF decides to go across! Of course the screaming and yelling on my part woke up every dog in the neighborhood!! Mr Castro, whenever YOU SEE A CYCLIST, please take a moment of pause and THINK!! You have a 3,000 pound car, the bike and rider weigh less than 220 pounds, do the math!! That CYCLIST is someone's father/mother brother/sister/cousin son/daughter. All we're doing is trying to stay in shape! Don't make me have to DIE because of it!!

that's the problem. he may have, if he hadn't been drinking. drivers get away with hitting cyclists all too often simply because they stop. this shit bag should do the maximum for attempted murder. 

as for cyclists respecting the road, when 100% of drivers aren't texting, taking fucking selfies, eating, drinking, drunk, putting on makeup, speeding, cutting other vehicles off, running stop signs and lights, turning without signalling the fuckwads will have an argument. for the time being, remember you're driving a 2000+ pound battering ram. 


if you forget, find a friend with a bike. have him get on the bike, release the brakes and roll into you. then, do the same with a car. tell me which does more damage to you.

people do not respect rules no where else more than in Miami. that is stupid common, this prick drunk, not only left this guy paralyzed, he drove him two miles and left him to die, your common sounds like is the cyclist fault, I'm sure you are one of those driver that do not respect any rules, so anyone in your way bathers you, until it happens to someone you love or yours self.

@happy42xxx@jgcamp99Are there roads that might have less traffic on them ? I plan my route & ride to use roads with less densely populated traffic conditions. This area in Ft Lauderdale, if you google the street view, is very much like NE 19th Ave in NMB where I live. There are several roads that are a block from it that run parallel and can be used to go to virtually any location on that street without having to ride the most traffic heavy road. Probably residential and local traffic only as opposed to the most popular road. Ride to work on a residential road and know the address, that way you can ride to the nearest street to that job. I do this all the time, it's not an inconvenience, not any more than getting run over on the main drag thru that area.

@jgcamp99To get a 6:31 AM sunrise, you'd have to go back to the time change to standard time from DST on Nov 2nd (7:30 AM) and 3rd (6:31 AM), 2013.

@roadpunk A cyclist should try to work with trafic but sometimes it is better to break the law - I will go through a red light at an intersection if there are no cars coming so I can get out ahead of the other cars stopped at the corner so they will have a chance to see me...otherwise I could take up the whole lane and go 20 mph which would not make anyone happy.
