PITTSBURGH (AP) - February 19, 2007 - A suspected drug dealer was cut in half this morning after he reached into a car that sped away and slammed him into a utility pole.
The top half of the victim's body was inside the vehicle when the car slammed the victim's legs into a utility pole and sheared his body in half.
Witnesses told police the car eventually went out of control and stopped before the male driver and two passengers fled on foot.
Investigators are trying to identify the victim from fingerprints.
