When the car was "attacked" was AFTER that teen girl knocked down and her leg pinned in front of the wheel. Fortunately, the driver stopped. Fortunately, they got him to.
He shouldn't have drove into those people as he was under no danger, could have backed up and could have gone to the open left lane. I think the driver decided he was NOT going to be forced to turn right when he didn't want to, wrongly pushed into the people - then realized someone was knocked down, he stopped, the people rightly did charge to stop the car too - and him right to then keep going after she was clear.
He should not have pushed into the people. He should have backed up.
