03.20.2024 | 12:08 PM | ANAHEIM – A woman was ran over and pinned against a building after a car accelerated over a curb and it was all caught on surveillance camera, Wednesday afternoon.

The crash occurred at a FedEx Office store located in the 5600 block of East La Palma Avenue around 12:08 PM when a grey Toyota Prius accelerated over a curb from a parking stall.

Video from the nearby Baran Mediterranean Restaurant Bar & Catering shows a woman on the sidewalk being ran over by the vehicle and pinned against the building the Toyota collided into.

Medics responded to the scene and rushed the female pedestrian to a nearby trauma center.
