PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Jaw-dropping video captured a hit-and-run following a Sixers game. A fan posted the video on Twitter after Friday night’s game, asking users to share it.
In the video, you can see the impact was so powerful, the victim was knocked out of his shoe.
“Just by the fact that the victim was knocked to the ground, anything could’ve happened–another car could’ve struck him or he could’ve been struck by another one of the tires,” said Sgt. Joseph Rossa with the Philadelphia Police Department.
***WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO***
So far investigators believe the hit-and-run driver was arguing with two men near the SUV in the video. Then the driver accelerates and swerved hitting another man who didn’t appear to have anything to do with the argument.
The victim suffered cuts and bruises but is expected to be OK.
Philadelphia police say they have seen the video and are investigating.
“We do have one video in our possession but if anybody else is in possession of any others that would be able to help us, such as identify who was driving or closer photographs of the video would be helpful, or anyone with any information would be helpful,” Rossa said.
