Tampa Police have released dramatic video that shows a car slam into people on a sidewalk and crash into a bar in Ybor City.

The incident happened early Tuesday morning. 

As ABC Action News reported earlier this week, there was a fight on 7th Avenue in Ybor City in front of The Bad Monkey bar. One of the subjects got into a car and attempted to make a U-turn on 7th Avenue. They couldn't complete the U-turn and the other subjects involved in the fight began to attack the car and the driver. 

 

 

 

Police say that's when the driver accelerated and hit one of the subjects with the car, a Nissan Altima, resulting in a leg injury. The car drove through the front of the bar, damaging the storefront.

The driver got out of the car and ran from the scene. The victim was transported to a local hospital, however, he refused medical treatment. 

Police arrested two people and they are still looking for the driver of the car.

The two suspects in custody were not in the car, however, they were involved in the fight.
