From The Daily Mail:

A New Jersey man had his left leg amputated after a drunk driver struck him and dragged him over a mile with his body protruding through the windshield, officials said.

Kenneth C Moeller, 61, of Lanoka Harbor was on life support at Jersey Shore University Medical Center after the operation, following a grisly car crash in Ocean Township on Monday evening.

NJ.com reports that Marcos Ortega, 33, was allegedly under the influence as he traveled north on Route 9 in a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse.

He veered onto the shoulder of the highway, where he struck Moeller as he was walking, according to investigators.

The crash resulted in Moeller becoming stuck in the windshield of Ortega’s car, which the driver continued to operate for a mile and a half.

It was only when Ocean Township Patrolman Kyle Flatt arrived, in response to a report of a car driving erratically, that Ortega stopped the car, authorities said.

Thank God Mr. Moeller wasn’t killed in this incident. Marcus Ortega needs to be thrown into jail for a long time, and have his license revoked, in my opinion.
