Saturday, a contentious divorced man was captured on video crashing a dump truck into his estranged wife’s home in South Los Angeles, slamming into parked cars along the way.
According to Patricia Dunn, her husband is the man in the video. She claims she worries for her life as they’re going through a divorce.
“A man under that kind of rage – who’s to say what he might do?” she said. “He was trying to kill me. He really was.”
The incident took place on Sunday In the South LA neighborhood of Westmont.
Dunn says her husband showed up at her home on three different occasions and crashed his truck into her bedroom.
The first time he crashed into her home with a Chevy Impala, he returned in a dump truck, did more damage, and then returned in the Impala again.
Outside of her bedroom, there are large dents in the exterior of the house, and the metal fence is bent to the ground.
“I was just trying to stay out of the way,” she said. “So I don’t know if he was drunk or under the influence. I never experienced anything like this in my life.”
One witness captured the entire incident on camera while her family attempted to console Patricia.
“That was honestly the craziest thing I have ever seen,” Meggerson said. “I can’t even believe.”
Since the initial call was for a traffic incident, not a crime, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department estimates that it took roughly 30 minutes for law enforcement to arrive on the scene.
A restraining order has since been filed against her estranged husband.
“We are going through a divorce. And he is upset about the fact no contact. He’s verbally abusive, and I have nothing nice to say.”
