[VIDEO] Anger Management in Houston: Surveillance Cameras Rolling, Female Driver Plows into Two Men in Gas Station Parking Lot

“When I turned around it was a lady coming full speed to take us out.” 

— Marcus Chukuwuu, one of the two men struck by the motorist

HOUSTON – The surveillance cameras were rolling outside the Fuel Depot gas station in the 11500 block of Bissonnet when a driver hit two men and kept going. “When I turned around it was a lady coming full speed to take us out,” said Marcus Chukuwuu. “She took off. (She) hit us both and just kept going.” Chukuwuu told Local 2 he and his boss stopped at the gas station to fill up after work.

“He was like, ‘Don’t kill me.’ And she was like, ‘If I wanted to kill you I’d shoot you, I won’t run you over.”

They were standing at one pump when a female driver tried backing into the space next to them. The video shows she came close to men, and they said they thought she was going to hit them. So one of the men told her to be careful.

“I walked across to give him the change and that’s when she just ran both of us over.”

The woman was mad, Chukuwuu said, and her comment scared him. So the 21-year-old walked away and went inside the store to get some change. He came out less than one minute later and that’s when the two men were hit.

Oh bloody hell, it's the wrong tracking pump

“Oh bloody hell, it’s the wrong fracking pump”

Robert Wilde reports:  On Monday, four members of an anti-fracking group wound up in jail for using bicycle locks and glue to fasten themselves to gas pumps at a petrol station in Great Lever, England. The group sacrificed themselves in order to protest the hydraulic fracking activities of Total, a French petroleum company.

But, to their embarrassment, the group sacrificed themselves to the wrong petrol station, which was no longer owned by Total. The petrol station was owned by Certas Energy, who neglected to take down the signs after buying the station.
