Then, out of desperation, he literally got behind the car.
“You just see him pushing the car away or attempting to push the car away, and he never puts it in park and the car almost hits him. It’s just very, very strange,” said hit-and-run victim Michael Koziela. “You basically see him slam into my friend’s car and my car simultaneously.”
