Man Shockingly Pushes Stranger In Front Of Moving Truck, Driver Saves The Day

A surveillance camera recorded a horrifying event in downtown Los Angeles on December 5.

A man, later identified as a 41-year-old homeless person, is seen sitting on a bench on West Sixth Street near South Broadway. As a woman passed him by he made a sudden move as if he wanted to attack or scare her. Fortunately for the woman, that was all he did.

As she disappears from the area covered by the camera, we see a man coming from the opposite direction towards the homeless person. Suddenly, the hooded man stood up and pushed the passing pedestrian into the street, right in front of a moving box truck.

Despite the driver’s phenomenal reaction speed, the vehicle did hit the pedestrian, causing him serious injuries. However, it’s safe to say that the driver’s awareness saved that man’s life. If he had stomped on the brakes a split-second later, the truck would have probably run over the unfortunate man.

Looking carefully at the footage we can notice another disturbing detail. As the victim got pushed in front of the vehicle, he dropped an object that the aggressor quickly picked up. It later turned out it was a bracelet. Was this all for a bracelet?

Probably not, because as it turns out, the homeless man allegedly tackled a woman to the ground a day before and punched another woman at a bus stop several hours after he threw the man in front of the truck.Police arrested him shortly after the third incident. According to the prosecutors, the attacks appeared to be random and unprovoked.

If found guilty, the aggressor faces a possible maximum sentence of life in state prison. The bail has been set at $1.09 million as he was deemed a dangerous individual. As for the victim, he is in critical condition in the intensive care unit with multiple broken bones, collapsed lungs and open wounds. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help him pay for treatment.
