That driver then jumped into his car, pinning the victim and dragging him until he fell to the ground.
Tuesday afternoon in Greenpoint, the two men got into a minor traffic dispute on McGuinness Boulevard by Norman Avenue.
The drivers got out, words were exchanged, and it went downhill from here.
According to the victim, the suspect tried to attack him with a knife, then went into the victim’s car and stole his car keys. As the suspect tried to escape, the victim is seen desperately trying to get his keys back as the incident unfolded.
Two residents saw the attack and tried to help the 24-year-old victim afterward.
“I think he was shaken up and shocked. Everything happened so fast,” one of the residents said.
The victim ended up flipping in the air, in between two parked cars. Police report he was taken to the hospital with injuries only to his hips and hands. It could’ve been far worse. He was able to stand after the incident. A good samaritan tried intervening and almost got slammed by the getaway vehicle.
Meanwhile, the suspect took off, with part of his fender left behind.
Police are still searching for the driver of the white Hyundai that left the scene. The car had tags from Florida.
The black car with TLC plates has over 50 tickets since 2015 for speeding in school zones, driving in bus lanes, parking by hydrants and other violations. People who have viewed the video have asked how TLC allows the driver to remain on the roads of New York City.
