Car Smashes Into Vehicle: Trio's Amazing Escape
Two men and a teenager had an amazing escape as they came within inches of being hit by a car that hurtled into their stationary vehicle.
The Cadillac was apparently going about 70mph as it smashed into the Ford Flex the trio had got out of only a split-second before.
They were walking alongside it when the Cadillac came from behind and sent the other car crashing into a wall - in an incident caught on CCTV.
One of the men, Daniel Archuleta, said: "He must have been going about 70, easy. When I saw him walk out of that smoke, I was relieved. It's a miracle.
"I heard my car get hit and when I finally turned around, I was up against the wall ? and hoping the car wasn't going to hit me."
Mr Archuleta claimed a female passenger in the Cadillac had said the male driver was trying to commit suicide when he sped up, jumped the curb and crashed deliberately.
Mr Archuleta told CBS he had given his friend Eddie Correa and his son Matthew a lift to a store to pick up Mr Correa's truck.
Mr Correa said he and his son were about 5ft from the car when they heard it accelerating behind them.
"All I did is yell at my neighbour to run," he added.
"It was like slow motion to me," said Mr Archuleta, "after that it was just a cloud of dust".
The driver of the Cadillac is recovering from his injuries in hospital.
His condition is unknown but police say when the man is released from the hospital they will interview him and determine whether he tried to commit suicide or whether he had a medical emergency.
