MOSCOW, Russia – A driver is on the run after being caught on camera running over another man.


Dashcam video of the entire incident was posted on YouTube.  The time-stamp on the video is July 14th 2014.

In the video the driver of a green Nissan can be seeing stopped at a traffic light getting out of his car and then walking to a white BMW stopped behind him.

The man and the driver of the BMW can be seen exchanging quick words and then the man walks back to his car.

Seconds later the driver of the BMW hits the gas and side-swipes the man.  The man is briefly pinned against his green Nissan.

The BMW then stops and the driver gets out to walk around his car apparently looking for any damage before driving away.

Passersby stop and help the man who sits up in the street, but who is also clearly injured.

Russian news channel RT reports that the video is real and that police in Moscow are now searching for the driver of the BMW.  That driver is considered a fugitive.

The man who was hit did survive and was conscious at the scene, but the extent of his injuries is unknown.

    Well, the first question that comes to mind is wy does this driver have a dash cam? Then why didn't he get out to help?

    For the "editor" of this article – it would be the "extent of his injuries are unknown" correct? Since it is insinuated that there is more than one?
