Missing: One Human Leg Severed During Hit-and-Run Accident

A man is dead and his leg is now missing following a hit and run incident early yesterday morning.

According to the Mesa Police Department, cops were called to the 400 block of West Broadway Raod about 2:30 a.m. yesterday after two men reportedly were hit by a car.

The responding officers found the two 25-year-old men unresponsive in the street with life-threatening injuries.

They were taken to Scottsdale Osborne Hospital where one of them died -- his leg, however, never made it to the hospital and is now missing.

The other man is in critical condition.

As for the leg, Mesa Detective Ed Wessing says it's possible it's with the vehicle suspected of hitting the two men.

The suspect vehicle is described as a teal, two-door Honda passenger car, possibly a Civic.

Wessing says the car has to be a little banged up, too -- it lost both side mirrors and probably sustained severe damage to its front end as a result of the collision. Pieces of the vehicle were found at the collision scene.

Anyone with information about the car -- or the leg -- should call the Mesa Police Department.
