A California veteran spoke out this week to say he was the victim of a terrorist attack in August when a man slammed into him on the highway “in the name of Allah.”
Scott Alcala told KMPH-TV that he was driving to a San Jose golf course to play with his father when a man driving a Toyota Corolla slammed into him on the highway. The Blaze reported that witnesses said the man, later identified as Ameer Abbas Fakhraldi, was driving extremely fast at the time of the crash. Authorities have confirmed that Fakhraldi was driving at over 100 miles per hour.
This incident was no accident, as Fakhraldi told police he drove into Alcala on purpose.
“The off-duty police officer went to talk to the other driver in his vehicle and he said, ‘Are you alright? That was way too fast,’ and (the driver) said ‘I did it on purpose. It was in the name of Allah,'” Alcala recounted.
The police reported said that Fakhraldi explained the crash was caused by Donald Trump’s improper treatment of minorities, and by Allah and other people’s lack of faith in him. He also said he used psychic/telekinetic powers to control the steering during the crash.
Alcala, a veteran who served in Afghanistan, believes he was the victim of a terrorist attack and that Fakhraldi should be taken off the streets before he does something even worse.
“He was just trying to target as many people as he could,” Alcala said. “He was just trying to cause a pile up. It wasn’t me personally. It was as if someone were to throw a bomb in the middle of downtown, it’s no different, it’s the same thinking.”
“Coming back from Afghanistan, thinking I’m on home soil I’m safe now just shouldn’t have to worry about something like that you know,” he added.
Astonishingly, Fakhraldi is no longer in police custody, but the FBI is involved in the case.
