A GRUBHUB driver allegedly ran over a restaurant worker and threw a fit after he had been asked to socially distance because of the coronavirus restrictions.
The incident was partially captured on video on Friday evening in the Lakeland area of Chicago.
Angenita Tanner, owner of Ms T’s Southern Fried Chicken, was seen arguing with a purported GrubHub driver after he became angry at being told to keep his distance due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
According to Tanner, the man had shown up to pick up a delivery but he became angry when she told him to wait outside as she only let one person inside at a time.
He then became angry and started kicking the door, reports TMZ.
Tanner and her daughter Bijan Early, 24, as well as another employee, followed the man outside to get his license plate and call the cops.
An argument erupted with Early standing in front of the guy’s car.
In the footage the man is then see accelerating and hitting Early before the footage ends.
Tanner claimed the man ran her daughter over with her needing to go to hospital with serious injuries.
Early is said to have suffered multiple broken bones and needed to undergo surgery.
Chicago Police Department said someone had turned themselves in over the alleged crime although no other details are available.
GrubHub condemned the alleged hit-and-run, adding they had revoked the driver’s credentials and were working with the cops over the investigation.
