Hialeah, FL (CNN/WSVN) – The final horrifying moments of a woman’s life caught on camera holding on to the hood of a van as it erratically travels through Hialeah, Florida traffic.

Surveillance video helped lead police to the driver.

The October 25th incident claimed the life of 42-year-old Norky Contreras Acosta.

The incident started all over a fender bender. A van that bumped into a Volkswagon at parking lot left the scene.
