SUV rams vehicle at pump as people flee at Natomas gas station
The sport-utility vehicle involved in a wild ramming of cars at a Natomas gas station and convenience store has reportedly been impounded by police.
No arrests have been reported.
The incident on May 20 shook up a store clerk and patrons.
Security video captures a driver ramming into cars parked in the lot or at pumps at the Arco station, 3501 Northgate Blvd., about 1:30 a.m. A motorist is plowed into as she sat in her car, and others fled as the driver continued crashing into vehicles for no apparent reason.
Store clerk Dinesh Tandel was at the station when the female driver began her low-speed onslaught.
“She tried to kill people,” Tandel said. “They need to get her.”
The video shows the SUV first hit a white car parked with a woman driver inside. Then the SUV driver backed into a red car parked in front of the convenience store.
Not done, the reckless driver clipped an SUV at the pump before hitting the first car once again when that driver tried to get out of the gas station parking lot. Finally, the wild driver plowed into the SUV at the pump as two of the three people in the vehicle flee.
An older woman was still inside the SUV at the pump when it was hit, Tandel said.
“She hit the vehicle at the pump and the white car hella hard,” Tandel said of the reckless driver.
The rampaging motorist then drove away. Tandel called the police and they are investigating, he said.
