New York Man Runs Over Girlfriend With Wife's Car, Drives Off

A married man driving his wife's car mowed down his girlfriend and then left her bleeding in the street as he sped off -- only to wind up seriously injured in another crash five hours later, New York authorities said Saturday.

Ricky Pena, 28, of The Bronx, struck the 23-year-old woman with the 2006 Honda Pilot SUV at 3:12am local time on West 46th Street flanked by Fifth and Sixth avenues in Midtown Manhattan, then sped away, police said.

Later, at 8:13am, Pena crashed the Honda, which is registered in his wife's name on the Harlem River Drive near 174th Street, police alleged.

He was rushed to the Harlem Hospital, where he was in severe condition. The hit-and-run victim was taken to the Bellevue Hospital Center in steady condition with a gash on her forehead.

Detectives are still investigating the situation of both crashes.
