Insane video shows men chased by driver who repeatedly rammed their car: ‘I felt like he was out to kill’

A video captured two men being chased in their car in Edmonton, Canada, and rammed over and over again by a pickup truck from behind Wednesday morning, with the drivers claiming that a gun was pointed at them during the chase and that they thought the guy wanted to kill them.

The incident took place on Anthony Henday Drive. The men were shaken over the incident which could have cost them their lives. They can be heard in the video calling the police and telling them what was transpiring.

Police are saying that it’s one of a string of vehicle crimes involving collisions and carjackings that occurred in Edmonton on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Yussef Zabian, who was the passenger in the car that was hit, took the video of the frightening encounter. The driver was Naeem Issa. Both spoke to CTV News Edmonton concerning the event Wednesday afternoon.

The men were on their way to work at about 7 am on Wednesday when the truck reportedly came out of nowhere. The man in the pickup originally pulled up next to them, took out a gun, and pointed it at them.

“This guy pulls up beside me and draws a gun and points a gun at us,” Issa recounted. “So I started to speed up trying to get away from him and he gets behind me, just starts ramming me from behind.”

The driver claims the attacker rammed them over 20 times from behind.

“We’re swerving through traffic, and he just kept on me and ramming me. Over 20 times this guy hit me,” Issa shockingly claimed. “Towards the end of the video there you’ll see I passed a police officer on the right shoulder, and he said he clocked me doing 170 kilometres an hour.” That’s just over 105 mph.

Shortly after thinking they had lost the attacker, he caught up with them and hit the car so hard from behind it was disabled.

“Put my car into emergency mode and it wouldn’t go anymore,” Issa noted.

He said they were lucky there was an officer on the road clocking speeders.

“I slammed on my brakes knowing that police officer is going to catch up to me,” Issa stated. “I slammed on my brakes and [the pickup truck] passed me a little bit and he slammed on his brakes and he was going to jump out of his truck, but then the police officer pulled up behind us and he went taking off. And then the police officer went after him.”

The whole incident lasted about five minutes. But it seemed like a lifetime to the two men in the car.

“He was trying to take us off the road. He was trying to get my car to spin out or something,” Issa asserted. “I felt like he was out to kill.”

Issa’s car is totaled but the two men did not suffer any major physical injuries. They were very lucky.

“Pretty shook up. A little sore. Just traumatized. Completely traumatized,” he said.

The attacker was arrested by police Wednesday morning after causing several more crashes and attempting multiple carjackings. According to officers, the incident with Zabian and Issa was one of many involving the suspect.

Police officers were summoned to the area of 117 Avenue and 102 Street at approximately 8:10 pm on Tuesday after receiving several reports of a white pickup truck smashing into other vehicles.

Officers determined that the attacker had been involved in two violent, armed carjackings earlier in the evening.

When police caught up with the guy, he reportedly got out of his vehicle and confronted them. One of the officers fired their service weapon evidently as a warning. The man then got back in his truck and fled the scene. He allegedly became involved in another armed carjacking a short distance away according to the police. No officers were injured in the confrontation.

A red pickup truck could be seen abandoned after crashing into some trees near a townhouse complex. It allegedly belonged to the attacker. Police taped off the area surrounding it. The man from the truck was taken to a hospital for precautionary reasons. He reportedly has 17 outstanding warrants.
