WATCH Clerk Critically Injured Trying To Save David Hasselhoff Cutouts

David Hasselhoff's Cumberland Farms iced-coffee-pegged life-size cardboard cutouts were the most popular summer "steal"... until this week.

What started (and continued for over a year) as a trend to steal the Hasselhoff cutouts from outside Cumberland Farms stores and post photos online of you with the Hoff, turned into a serious case when a store clerk tried to stop some people from taking a sign outside the Shelton, Connecticut, store where he worked.

The clerk was trying to flag down the SUV carrying the stolen cutouts when the car hit and dragged the 36-year-old employee, and he landed on his head. He's been in critical condition since.

A 19-year-old man turned himself in as one of the three people who were in the SUV, but no names have been disclosed.
