Woman Hits Red Light Runner And Saves Pedestrians From Alleged Drunk Driver

Recommended Posts

The Phoenix Police Department is calling a Chevrolet Cruze a “hero” as it protected a couple from an accident.

According to officials, a 27-year-old woman was driving the Cruze at the intersection of 53rd Ave and Indian School on October 14th at approximately 10:10 pm.

As you can see in the video, traffic is stopped at a red light and the couple begins crossing the street while pushing a stroller. About six seconds into the clip, a Jeep driven by Ernesto Otanez Oveso blows through the light and is headed straight for the pedestrians.

Fortunately, the Cruze slammed into the Jeep. The force of the impact pushed the Jeep off to the side and caused the woman’s Cruze to go into a spin. Thankfully, the crash saved the pedestrians and they can be seen running across the street.

While the clip ends there, the police department said Oveso and his female passenger fled the scene. However, a witness saw what happened and decided to follow him. Oveso eventually noticed and told the man to stop, “even stabbing one of the doors on his car.”

The woman got away, but police caught up with Oveso who was arrested on aggravated assault and DUI charges. Police also found a gun in the Jeep, so they slapped the 28-year-old with a prohibited possession charge as well.

Unfortunately, the story doesn’t have a happy ending as police confirmed the Cruze driver suffered non life-threatening injuries. Her car was also significantly damaged.

See, AMDK also have "major turn" while pedestrians crossing but they don't make a big fuss about it unlike complain king sinkies.

Would we be called heroes if we somehow ram down a PMD which is about to run down a pedestrian?

PMD considered vulnerable relative to car, so no. Maybe if you are another pedestrian doing a rugby tackle on PMD that's ok. 😂

They are but only if you are licensed.

And leaving it in the car compartment may still flout the law if its not locked out of sight and access to minors.

lastly it depends on which state you are in.

some states allow licenced gun owners to carry a gun holstered on their waist in full sight.

truly the WWW

You might need a separate permit to carry it in public.

Accidental Hero. If it happens in Singapore, will the police help the Cruze owner with the repair bill, since insurance company of that drunkard will cite their company policy and refuse Cruze owner's claim?:a-aggressive:

When I first read the article, it gave me the impression that the Cruze driver knowingly & purposely sped up to block the jeep.

But fom the video, it's apparent that the Cruze driver juz suay n hit the Jeep who ran a red light...
