Teenager Driver's Attack With Car Caught On Video

CCTV:BRADENTON,Florida Zack Bell was hit from behind and tossed into the street as his shoes flew off. He got up, momentarily looked at the car's headlights and ran off, barefoot and bleeding.

The teenager ran to a neighbor's house for help, but he got no answer. He sprinted to a convenience store and called his mother, who drove him to a hospital.

That Bell survived, state prosecutors say, is incredible. That the crash was caught on video is extraordinary. A homeowner's surveillance camera recorded the wreck that night in September.

The crash, authorities said, was not an accident but an intentional, violent act stemming from an argument. There were no witnesses. The video, central to the prosecution's criminal case, showed it all.

"This was a hideous crime. This was attempted murder," Bell's mother, Barbara Shaffer, said Saturday. "This girl didn't punch my son in the face.
