A street surveillance camera in western Mexico captured the shocking moment a truck driver mowed down three men – killing two – after they allegedly mugged him at gunpoint.
The driver, identified as Víctor, was standing outside a store in Guadalajara, Jalisco, when he was approached by the three suspects on Friday afternoon.
The muggers forced Víctor into turning over his cellphone and his money before they fled on foot.

The alleged muggers are seen on video crossing a street in the western Mexico city of Guadalajara just moments before the truck driver that they had allegedly robbed at gunpoint crashed his vehicle into them. Two of the suspects were pronounced dead at an area hospital.

A security camera mounted near an intersection shows the assailants walking on a sidewalk before they crossed the street. The truck driven by Víctor then subsequently appeared in the footage before it accelerated and slammed into them.
Video recorded by a witness at the scene showed one of the muggers who survived the accident pinned under the truck.
The gun that was used in the mugging was found lying underneath the rear of the truck.
Víctor can be heard in the video telling the witness that he had been robbed earlier as the other two suspects could be spotted lying on the ground unresponsive.
