NBC Southern California – Buena Park police released dramatic video Monday of a hit-and-run that propelled a man into the air after he collided with the car’s windshield.
Surveillance video captured the incident, which went down on Campus Drive at Orangethorpe Avenue in Buena Park shortly after noon on Sunday, June 10.
“We’re treating it as assault with a deadly weapon,” said Cpl. Andy Luong of the Buena Park Police Department. “The vehicle being the weapon. Without the video, just a hit and run. Based on that surveillance video and witness statements, an assault.”
In the video (below) released on YouTube by Buena Park Police, two people can be seen crossing the Campus Drive, a side street, when a vehicle travelling on Orangethorpe Avenue swerved out of the main road and directly into the victim, sending him into the air as he bounced off the windshield.
The other pedestrian, later identified as the victim’s brother, runs after the vehicle, which fled the scene, leaving the victim rolling on the pavement.
