Gothamist – The Buffalo Police Department released this video of an 18-year-old man being struck by a hit-and-run driver, and it’s pretty intense. It shows Victor Jerez and two other men walking in the street; they see a car coming, so they rush to the sidewalk. But the driver comes barreling onto the sidewalk, hitting Jerez and sending him flipping through the air. Luckily, witnesses called the police and they were able to arrest the (19-year-old) driver, Tornubari Gbaraba, five minutes after the May 3 incident, which was followed by a high-speed chase. Buffalo Mayor Bryan Brown said, “The footage is extremely graphic,” but explained he was releasing the video to address the apparent spike of hit-and-run incidents (including the death of a 14-year-old boy on his bike) the city has seen lately, “The purpose for showing this video footage is to dramatize how dangerous hit and run accidents are.” Amazingly, Jerez left the hospital shortly after being treated for his injuries. And Gbaraba was charged with assault, reckless driving and fleeing from a police officer.
Left the hospital shortly after being treated for injuries?? Are you kidding me? Dude got Meet Joe Black’d
Ordinarily this is where people are like “Go buy a lottery ticket! You’re the luckiest man in the world!” Fuck that noise bro! You just used up ALL of your luck for the rest of your life. Don’t buy lotto tickets. Don’t buy Super Bowl boxes. Don’t do anything that involves any amount of luck. I wouldn’t even go outside if it was raining because there is a 100% chance you’d get struck by lightning. Because that night in Buffalo when you got helicoptered by a car going 100 miles per hour and walked out of the hospital you cashed in every last penny of your karma account.
