TROY, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a man managed to call an emergency dispatcher and describe his situation while he clung to the outside of a pickup truck as it traveled three miles on a New York road.
Police in Troy tell local media that 45-year-old Robert Kowalik got into a dispute Sunday with another man at convenience store. When the man drove away in his pickup truck, Kowalik was on the outside of the vehicle.
Police say it's not clear whether he had grabbed onto the truck or accidentally got attached.
Authorities say he managed to dial 911 on his cell phone and give the dispatcher a "play-by-play" of the ordeal, which ended when he fell in a store parking lot.
Kowalik was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver was charged with assault.
