This is the shocking moment that a driver in California flew a pedestrian 10 feet into the air on a busy road after he bumped into him.
Video footage shows the suspect rushing through Downtown LA on Saturday, closely avoiding being bombed by two other vehicles as he hit a marked pedestrian crossing while the traffic light was red.
The clip then shows the person behind the wheel slam in a 27-year-old father Daniel Macedonio, who crossed Saturday and Saturday at 11 p.m. Grand Avenue and 9th Street on his way home from work at a nearby restaurant.
The victim was hit several times by the dark four-door sedan, which flipped away and bounced off the hood before being thrown over the windshield and 35 feet across the road.
A car drove through red light and hit Daniel Macedonio, 27, and threw it over the hood on Saturday
The father crossed the intersection of Grand Ave and 9th St on his way home from work in Los Angeles, California when he was injured around 11 p.m.
He suffered a broken hand in the incident where the driver did not stop to help him
But the car that drove south on 9th St just drove on and left Macedonio in the middle of the road.
The father suffered from his ribs and injuries to his knee and hands.
A GoFundMe page asked for help with medical costs described as & # 39; significant due to the severity of his injuries & # 39 ;.
By Thursday afternoon, the crowdfunding effort had raised $ 315 from a goal of $ 65,000.
& # 39; We are very grateful that he was able to walk away with his life and be home again with his family & # 39 ;, page organizers Hernan Alvarado and Frances Buenrostro write about the & # 39; father of a beautiful little girl & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Someone has just beaten my son and he didn't care, & # 39; said his mother Frances Buenrostro Fox 5.

She is grateful that her son survived and hopes that the driver has been found.
& # 39; It happened too often in LA, & # 39; she added.
The Central Traffic Division (CTD) investigators of the Los Angeles Police Department ask the public for help in finding the driver involved in the traffic accident and collision.
On April 15, 2015, the City Council amended the Los Angeles Administrative Code and established a Hit and Run Reward Program Trust Fund.
A reward of up to $ 25,000 is available to community members who provide information that leads to the identification, fear and conviction or resolution of the perpetrator through a civil compromise.
