Unlike my recent regrettable episode of repeating hearsay as fact, I’ll just let the news story speak for itself in this case from Sacramento, California.
Witnesses told police that around 2 p.m. Sunday, the 13-year-old threw the bottle at the teen’s vehicle in Sacramento’s Arden Arcade area. That’s when the driver flipped a U-turn and gunned it for the boy.
Witnesses reported hearing the driver rev the engine and speed up before running over the boy on a neighbor’s lawn, crushing the bike and pinning the boy under the engine compartment between the front two tires.
