The woman was in stable condition at Shands, police said.

Gainesville police questioned a man Monday who was suspected of driving a car that hit a pedestrian and dragged her several yards through Spyglass Apartments.

Just before 5 a.m. Monday, the Chrysler Sebring hit a pedestrian near the swimming pool area in the complex, at 701 SW 62nd Blvd., and dragged her for roughly 40 yards before the car was stopped by the exit gate, GPD spokesman Officer Ben Tobias said in an email. Witnesses lifted the car off the victim, who was then pulled out.

The car was reported stolen by a woman who says she was letting the suspected driver sleep in it but not drive it around. It was still unclear as of Monday afternoon whether charges were pending in the case. The man's identity had not yet been released.

Tobias said in a text message Monday afternoon that an arrest in the case was unlikely to be made Monday evening because of pending blood work and the amount of time it takes to complete a crash investigation.

The woman who was hit appeared to be in stable condition, police said.

Near the apartment complex’s front entrance at about 9:30 a.m. Monday, a forensic investigator was seen putting evidence labels on a 2007 Chrysler Sebring; a GPD officer spoke through a rolled-down window to the suspected driver, who was shirtless and shielding his face; and a tow truck driver used a tow hitch to haul the car onto the truck and off the roadway.

The car's passenger side tire rims appeared be splattered with blood. Orange spray paint circled spots on the ground where investigators had found unidentified evidence.

An Alachua County sheriff's deputy showed up later in the morning and said he’d been called to the apartments regarding a stolen vehicle related to the incident.

A woman, who said she previously dated the suspected driver, told The Sun a GPD investigator called her in the morning, said her car had been in an accident and requested she come to the scene.

The 23-year-old woman declined to give the reporter her name. The woman said she had been letting the 24-year-old man sleep in the car at her apartment complex — not Spyglass. He is not a resident of the apartment complex, she said.

When she woke up Monday morning to take her children to school, the car was gone.

“I let him sleep in my car,” she said. “I didn’t allow him to go wandering around in my car.”

Sid Crosby, regional manager for Continental Management, which manages Spyglass, said he couldn’t say much about the crash because it was still under investigation by law enforcement.

Crosby said police officers reviewed the apartment's surveillance cameras and he answered all their questions.

“We’re working together with GPD, trying to be as helpful as possible,” Crosby said.

Spyglass resident Julia Grady-Weil said she heard the crash at about 5 a.m. Monday morning, shortly after it happened.

Grady-Weil said she looked out of her window, which looked directly over the crash, and saw several “drunk-sounding” people wearing bathing suits.

“I heard a lot of noise and shouts and literally less than a few minutes later police had arrived,” Grady-Weil said. "I guess someone had called them already."

She said the people were shouting statements like, “We have to get her out from underneath the car!” and, “You deserve to go to jail!”

Alejandro Pereira, 23, who lives at a Spyglass apartment adjacent to the pool, said he left to go to class at the University of Florida at about 8:45 a.m., and he’d heard about the crash but it wasn't loud enough to wake him up.

“I’m actually not (a heavy sleeper),” Pereira said. “My girlfriend texted me saying she heard something had been going on, but I didn’t even hear anything.”

Residents agreed that Monday’s early morning activity was unusual for the area.
