INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A second arrest had been made this week in a hit-and-run case. Corey Dunz faces charges for leaving the scene of a crash on May 1.
24-Hour News 8's Daniel Miller spoke to the victim he's accused of hitting.
47-year-old David Heady's right leg below the knee had to be amputated. He says he's thankful to be alive, but more frustrated that the person who hit him didn't stop.
"It's just, my whole life just changed," Heady said. "It's like I have to start all over now."
From his sixth floor hospital room at Wishard Memorial Hospital, David Heady talked about the day his life changed.
"I had bought one bottle of a six pack and I was headed over my friends house," Heady recalls. "I even parked my car at my friends house, so I wouldn't be driving. I thought it was a nice day. I'll walk over there."
Heady was walking down East Morris and South Meridian Street last Wednesday. He says he attempted to cross the street, heading towards a friend's house.
"I seen a car coming from way from down there. I knew that I had enough time to get on the sidewalk."
Heady never made it to the sidewalk. According to the police report a 1993 BMW 325 hit him.
"When they hit me, I really can't remember too much. I know I was lying on the ground and my bone is sticking out of my leg and there's a big ole hole in the side of my leg," Heady said.
It didn't take police long to track down the suspect's car.
Police say Corey Dunz's car had damage consistent to the crash. Investigators say Dunz also admitted to driving the car when the crash happened.
Heady says what upsets him the most is his nephew knows Dunz and was bragging about hitting someone with his car.
"They could have stopped and faced up to what they just did. They just left me to die you know," Heady said.
Dunz has no criminal history, but Marion County records show he's had four speeding tickets in the last 14 months.
David Heady has had four surgeries in the last week and will need several more.
Next Thursday is his 48th birthday. He says he's happy he'll be able to spend it with his children and grandchildren.
