DAVIE (CBSMiami) — Davie Police say surveillance video captures the last moments of the life of Alfonso Ordonez.

He’s seen crossing State Road 7 just before midnight on June 25th. He stumbles over the median and falls in the northbound lanes, lying still for a little bit.

A friend runs to see him. Then a silver or gray small SUV drives by.

And what happens next is up for debate – did the car hit Ordonez or not? Even police are not entirely sure.

“This (driver) is probably focused on the light or the intersection, doesn’t see something in the road,” said Davie Capt. Dale Engle. “It’s obvious that the car does not run over him but he may have grazed the individual just enough to cause the injury but we don’t know.”

WARNING! This video is graphic and disturbing, and shows the victim’s final moments.

Police say they believe Ordonez may have been drinking prior to crossing the street.

“Alcohol may have been a factor on the victim’s part at this point,” Engle said.

Shortly after the incident, Holly Wilson told CBS4 what she saw.

“I saw a man walking up to the curb and I saw him fall and a loud smack on the ground,” she said.

A friend said Ordonez was hit by the car that kept on going but police haven’t confirmed that. We asked if it’s possible Ordonez died when he fell face first. Investigators say that is possible.

“You see in the video he doesn’t put his hands down or anything to stop his fall,” Engle said. “It’s definitely possible he could’ve fractured his skull.”

At this point, Davie Police tell me they do not see criminal charges resulting from this incident unless they learn new information that takes the case in that direction.

If anyone has any information, contact the Davie Police Department at (954) 693-8200 or Broward Crime stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS (8477).
