A man faces several charges, including driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license, after police say he drove his car off a road Wednesday, hitting and critically injuring a pedestrian.
Police said Robert Sinn, 33, was driving a 2008 Chevy Impala north on Biscayne Boulevard when he left the roadway near Northeast 64th Street and hit a man walking near a bus bench.
Sinn's vehicle also hit a palm tree, a streetlight, another tree, a bus sign post and a trash can, police said.
Witnesses told police that Sinn got out of the car, went over to the victim, who was lying on the ground, reached down, yelled something at him, stepped over him and got back in the car, according to the arrest form.
Sinn drove away before police arrived, but witnesses pointed officers in his direction, police said.
When an officer caught up with Sinn, he said, "Officer, I fell asleep at the wheel. Is the guy that I hit going to be OK?" according to the arrest report.
Sinn faces charges of leaving the scene of an accident with serious bodily injury, several charges relating to driving under the influence, and driving with a suspended license.
The pedestrian was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital in critical condition.
