persuaded her to pull her car over near Crenshaw Boulevard and 182nd Street.
'He is literally embedded in her hood and into the windshield,' Torrance Police Sgt. Robert Watt told the Los Angeles Daily News.
'She knew he was somehow embedded into her car but she panicked.'
There were no witnesses who saw Wilkins hit him but she was going fast enough Moreno was knocked out of his shoes and shorts.
Moreno was in critical condition when emergency services reached him but was aware enough to speak to officers at the scene.

She told officers she was driving home from work.
