Man’s Marvel-themed prosthetic leg stolen after he was hit by a car

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – A man’s prosthetic leg was stolen after he was hit by a car in St. Petersburg on Monday.

Christopher Allen Harris, 49, was crossing 5th Avenue N in the crosswalk when he was hit by a car.

The impact of the crash caused Harris’ prosthetic leg to dislodge and hit another car that was driving eastbound on 5th Avenue N.

Before officers were able to get to the scene, Harris’ prosthetic leg was stolen.

St. Petersburg police said Joshua Albert Grimmer, 21, was driving the 2004 Infinity G35 that hit Harris.

Both Grimmer and the other driver stopped and cooperated with the crash investigation, officers said.

The prosthetic leg is customized with Marvel artwork. Harris’ family and officers are asking anyone with information on the prosthesis to return it to the police department.

The prosthetic leg is worth about $15,000.

Detectives do not believe alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash. The investigation is ongoing.
