A jaw-dropping hit-and-run video has been released by the Buena Park police in hopes that someone will identify the car involved.
Adding to the horror is the fact that police believe the plowing may have been intentional, the LA Weekly reports. And it certainly looks that way in the video above.
A 20-year-old man and his brother were crossing the street near Buena Park High School in Orange County, Calif. just after 1 p.m. Sunday when it happened. The 20-year-old was the victim.
"The vehicle struck the victim with such force that it caused him to strike the front windshield and the impact propelled him into the air," the Buena Park Police Department told OC Weekly. "The driver of the vehicle never stopped and made no attempts to render aid after hitting the victim with his vehicle."
Without hesitation, the victim's brother darted after the car, perhaps in an attempt to catch the license plate.
The vehicle, which was captured by a nearby surveillance camera, is believed to be a gold, four-door Mitsubishi Galant with tinted windows, ABC reports. The vehicle is expected to have moderate damage to the front passenger side windshield that the man flew into.
The victim suffered significant but non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to the UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange.
The driver of the car was described by police as a thin Latino and the passenger was described as a Latina with her hair up in a bun, FOX reports.
Anyone with information about the car, driver or passenger is asked to contact Detective Burciaga at 714-562-3970.
