    Clutch braking @ 70 mph.
    Lesson learned; if I hit a pedestrian in Detroit, I'll stomp the accelerator, not worth sticking around and catching a beating.

    Or that the kid ran out into the path of the truck, it is clearly evident in the video.

    Just so you know Detroit is not on the shore of Lake Erie, that's Cleveland.
    Detroit is on the Detroit River.

    According to the victim's daughter, the man's wallet was still in his vehicle after the beating. A couple of local dj's were talking with a caller that lives in the area (caller was black) and he says race had nothing to do with this incident.
