The victim said he was knocked unconscious for 20 seconds and was contacted by unrelated people asking if he was okay.

The driver, a 29-year old Oakland resident, said he was on probation, and Officer Gill waited for his cover officer to arrive. While waiting for the officer to arrive, Officer Gill said the passenger kept moving his hands around the vehicle, and since he could not see his hands clearly, he advised the passenger to keep his hands on the dash board.

The driver, a 31-year old San Francisco resident, said after she came to a complete stop, the subject jumped onto her hood and rolled back onto the ground and became motionless.
