MOBILE phone footage captured an alarming scene in the immediate aftermath of a hit-and-run in Miami, Florida, as a man approaches the offending silver Infinity SUV and smashes all of its windows, one-by-one.
The Infiniti had crashed into several cars on Sunday morning but failed to stop, resulting in multiple drivers getting out of their damaged vehicles to try to stop the perpetrator from from leaving the scene.
Several people attempted to pull the Infiniti driver from his car before he fled the scene, according to Miami’s Local 10 News. In the video, one man screams, “Don’t move.”
Regarding the behaviour of the Inifiniti driver, witness Anthony Jimenez said: “That’s crazy. You know, you have a crash, you stop.”
Jimenez, who called the police, said the man with the sledgehammer went too far.
Miami police said there were no injuries to any of the drivers involved. Despite the man’s attempt to flee, he was taken into custody.
Police said they do not encourage drivers to try and stop someone from leaving the scene. They urge people to call police with a description of the vehicle.
