Police say the unidentified victim was selling crack cocaine to the driver of a blue Dodge Neon shortly after 6 a-m in the city's Homewood neighborhood when the driver tried to leave without paying.

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.
