A SoCal teen made the hare-brained decision to, according to an eyewitness, flee an alleged hit-and-run and when blocked in, ran again.

Update: Oct 28, 2019- A resident near the area spotted the infamous Hyundai towed away on a flatbed trailer, probably to a repair shop.

Update: Oct. 27,2019- The Flyer posted up a submitted photo of the on-site vacuum damaged driving away. According to J.E. Adams and Kleen Rite, these units cost start around $1,300 and go up from there.

According to Lake Elsinore’s Mayor, no hit-and-run suspect has come forward at this time and no formal charges filed. Riverside police know who the suspect in the video is and are working on this case.

Update Oct 25, 2019 : One local noticed a car matching the car in the viral video parked outside lives.That photo’s been making the rounds. Another Temecula resident claims to have seen someone who looked like the alleged hit-and-run suspect outside an AM/PM near Railroad Canyon. Comments source here.

No word if police will charge the suspect with a misdemeanor punishable by up to $1,000 and maximum six months’ jail time but we’ve learned they are attempting to find the hit-and-run victims

You wouldn’t think it was possible to make so many poor decisions in 90 seconds but this Lake Elsinore teen in her clapped out Hyundai Sonata did. Video showing the confrontation between a Dodge Journey driver now identified as Justin Thompson and an alleged hit-and-run suspect’s successful attempt at fleeing is going viral.

Check out the wild video thanks to Laura Harper’s submission to People of Menifee below.

Also, NBC Los Angeles caught up with the driver of that Dodge Journey with their video embedded after the Facebook video.

Anyone know this angel? Hit and run twice. Waiting for police.

In the video above we’re presented with an alleged case of hit and run at the height of emotions. Justin Thompson, the man filming, blocks her in with his Dodge Journey. According to Justin, he witnessed this Hyundai Sonata hit some cars and tried to help the hit-and-run victims, keeping the suspect there until the police arrived.

This teen, in a panic, bargains with Justin to let her go, pleading how he doesn’t understand and mentions how “you don’t understand how mean my Grandma is!”

After stuffing the front end of her Hyundai Sonata in the back seats, she hops the curb in reverse, almost hits Justin filming, and drives off in a hurry.

The last thing she wants on her plate is two points on her record, a giant fine and losing her freedom (getting to drive wherever she wants.) If convicted, hit and runs with property damage and no injuries are misdemeanors in California so there’s also a possibility for jail time.

According to Thompson in NBC’s coverage,

“She does a hit and run, who knows if those people were hurt, she takes off trying to do 90 MPH, there’s kids, there’s other people, and it’s just like it’s not…she needs to be held accountable for that.

It’s cliche to say but driving is a privilege, not a right and comes with serious responsibility.

Some people learn about consequences of poor driving where they should, in Driver’s Ed and from learning from other’s mistakes.

Others, like this girl, will learn about consequences of unsafe driving with two points on their record, a fine, and hiked up insurance rates.

If you get into an accident and you’re at fault, don’t just drive away. It might seem like a good idea to run off but you’re just making it worse for yourself.

Also, if you witness a hit and run, think about not being a hero and attempting a risky citizen’s arrests on your own. Take any pertinent information down and report it to local police as soon as possible. As this case shows, not only did Justin fail in his attempt to block her in, he escalated an already emotional situation.

And if you made it this far and are wondering, those wheels she’s rocking on her Sonata are JNC034’s A.K.A. garbage tier wheels made in China. Oh, poor decisions were made alright.

      • F*** that i would have done the same to this b****, in fact when she hopped put to get her bumper i would have jumped in her car and taken the keys out of that s***.

        • Then u would have most definitely gotten a felony charge of criminal confinement or at least theft. Stealing her keys prohibiting her from leaving is also a crime. Not saying this druggie bitch doesn’t deserve it but if u did that, it’d b another video of an idiot going viral. Would’ve made the video more interesting 🧐 tho !!!

    • I agree! She is definitely wrong, but he’s a idiot! She looks highly stressed and unstable with a head full of air. He’s talking about bad choices! He needs to get out of that crazy girls way! She is letting everyone know she has like a life or death situation “you guys just don’t understand”! 😂 I’m sure he got her plate on video when he pulled up behind her. He could have gave that to the police when they arrived. He almost got run over and he got his car hit. I wonder if he got that covered by her insurance??!

      • get out of her way so she can cause more havoc in public? she needed to be stopped right there. it could’ve been you or one of your loved ones in harm’s way.

    • she had hit some other cars. she was a danger on the streets in her mental state. it was a serious situation, so the guy with the camera was in his right.

  1. Here from Reddit, where the general consensus is that this article was written by a 5-year-old, contains zero actual information but a lot of speculation, and is more g****** than a clapped-out Hyundai.

  2. Writing is not this guys forte’… stay in your lane Paulo, KFC counter help suits you best.

    Doubt it’s a teen, more like a tweaker on a rampage. The dodge guy – yeah, d-bag sounding, but also right for trying to keep her from continuing the rampage and maybe killing someone – those that agree, you are part of the problem.

  3. She’s 22 years old (as of last August, 2019) and people have been posting her name and her criminal record (petty theft, drug possession, etc.) on Facebook.

  4. I like how at the end you say JNC wheels are s***, they’re not Chinese made wheels, JNC is an American brand and their wheels are manufactured in the US, and overall this article is f***ing trash

  5. Since when is being 22 years old make someone a teenager??? She’s not a teen. Purposely portraying her as a teen was to make her seem more unstable and to make her seem more of a social menace? She’s not a teen. She’s a 22 year old grown woman.

  6. Um does anyone else think it’s a little strange that no proof of this hit and run has surfaced? Why are we taking his word for it? I don’t believe it happened! He says there was an accident with bodily injury! He says she hit another vehicle and ppl were hurt! Where the f*** are they? No police report has been filed by these supposed victims. The police and the mayor have made public pleas for the supposed victims to come forward. They haven’t. There at least 20 visible closed circuit cameras atop traffic lights in the area of this alleged hit and run. I have to believe the police have checked out all the footage looking for proof of this accident. She hasn’t been arrested. Not hard to figure out what really happened. This whack job chased down a young woman with an intent to harm her. He whipped out his camera and tried to cover his a** with a bs story about a hit and run when he realized she was going to get away. The police should search his house. Make sure he doesn’t have women tied up in the closet.

    • Wow, you must have watched a lot of TV detective shows to come up with this. You are sure the guy filming chased down the girl. At what point did she try and run or say anything other than get out of her way, just so she could drive away. Where do you think the bumper came off? If a guy is chasing a woman to do her harm, why is he filming, including getting a video of his own vehicle? Did it say anything in the admittedly hard-to-read article that said the hit and run happened there? If you look at her history you might get the idea that gram works in the county jail.

    • She actually says in the video “it’s already a hit and run. I ran, ok”…she admits to the hit and run that happened before this exchange. She also says she thought he was the guy she hit, so she pulled over…. It was the OTHER hit and run that prompted this fast lane crusader to follow her (going 90 mph) and corner her in this gas station.

  7. Lol she using some of that old w***e privilege to get out of this one . Got everyone feeling bad for her and a gofund page? Being called a teen when’s she’s over 20 lol . Arrest that criminal and charge her.

  8. Paul, you are legitimately a moron. Switch your hobby I sincerely think your poor writing skills is worse than that woman’s hit and run case. And that face lol oh God fix your teeth…

    • Alleged hit and run and no way I’m fixing my teeth. People who fix their teeth and then look like some Hollywood cyborg look unnatural imo. Natural yellow teeth are also literally stronger than fixed whitened teeth fyi.

      Also, not stopping writing any time soon, in fact I’m going to write EVEN more mwahaha. My writing might not be the strongest but I post stories and break stories no one else is and that’s where my strength lies.

  9. Still no victims, eh. We are a week into a nationally covered “news” story and we still don’t have a victim in this alleged hit and run. Thus, we have retained legal counsel. This was not a citizen arrest. This was not a legal detainment. This was the taking of a hostage! I advise every women to fight like hell if taken hostage by a lunatic. Don’t worry about damaging a vacuum. Just GET AWAY. DO EXACTLY AS SHE DID. GET AWAY AND CALL THE POLICE. MAKE YOUR ESCAPE BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY! YOU WON’T BE IN TROUBLE. NO REASONABLE MAN WOULD TAKE A HOSTAGE OVER AN ALLEGED FENDER BENDER! SO DO NOT SUBMIT, EVEN IF YOU ARE GUILTY! IF YOU KNOW YOURSELF TO BE INNOCENT, AS THIS YOUNG WOMAN KNOWS HERSELF INNOCENT, YOU MUST ASSUME MALICIOUS INTENT BY THE HOSTAGE TAKER. YOU MUST GET AWAY IF YOU CAN. DON’T WORRY ABOUT PROPERTY DAMAGE. FOR GOD SAKE, LEAVE THE BUMPER BEHIND. JUST GET AWAY BEFORE HE CAN HURT YOU! And if the yahoo who tries to detain you publishes a video of your escape (in a smear campaign to save himself from criminal charges) retain a good attorney and march straight to civil court! Sue the s*** out of him and every libelous media outlet who participates in the travesty of justice. Make a fuss until the a**hole is charged and arrested with the numerous felonies he commits on camera!!! … You can bet that is what we are doing!
