According to Fox News on Friday, the driver deliberately ran over an elderly man after the two met up in a Las Vegas gas station. The elderly man was left with serious injuries to his legs. Stumped Las Vegas Metro Police say the driver is now wanted on charges of attempted murder.
On February 6, witnesses say a near-collision between two cars occurred at the Arco gas station at 6102 West Flamingo Road in Las Vegas. The older man, whose name and age have not been released, pulled into the gas station, but the dark gray Honda cut him off, forcing the driver to swerve after a near miss.
The older man parked his vehicle in front of the pump, and was making his way across the lot to the convenience store to pay in advance when the driver of the Honda sped up to him, slammed the brakes on, then inched forward and bumped the man’s legs.
Words were exchanged, and then, as the video feed shows, the Honda proceeds to drive over the man’s legs, leaving him writhing on the ground in pain.
“When I turned around, I saw an old white man on the floor right there and then I called 911 so they could help him,” said Arco employee Sheyla Rodriguez. “I heard someone screaming and when I turned around the only thing I could see is California plates and a silver car running away, leaving the area.”
Witnesses were not able to see the entire tag on the car, but the first two characters of the California plate are “6C.”
The driver is described as a white male in his 30s, medium build. At the time of the attack the suspect was wearing a gray hoodie.
“We set up this video so folks would be able to notify us if they could identify this person or vehicle,” Las Vegas police told FoxNews.com.
