Police say a Texas man who died in a weekend hit and run was dragged more than 400 feet by a vehicle before his body was ejected from beneath the car. Dallas police on Monday said 36-year-old Carlos Ramirez Bartolo was pronounced dead late Saturday night, nearly 90 minutes after he was struck by a vehicle while crossing the road.

Witnesses told police that Bartolo originally landed on top of the vehicle and then rolled off in front of it when the car came to a stop. The suspect then fled the scene, running over Bartolo and dragging him for 423 feet.

Police say the suspect's vehicle is a small, red four-door sedan, likely with some damage to the windshield.
