NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A shocking caught on camera moment is revealed from a service station store in Columbia, Tennessee. Security Cameras caught footage shows a man running a truck straight into the middle of the store. Police learned that he was attempting to run over and kill his girlfriend.
The woman you see running into the store shortly before the accident is the girlfriend of Eric Whitaker. The two were involved in an argument in the parking lot of a service station. After the truck comes to a slamming halt, Whitaker is seen getting out of the car, then checks underneath the vehicle to see if he was successful in his attempted murder.
Whitaker then left the store and got into a SUV and drove away from the station. As he turned out onto the busy road, he slams into a delivery truck for a head-on collision.
Whitaker was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition. According to reports, his health seems to be improving and he is expected to survive.
Police have classified this case as a domestic violence incident.
