Instead, the vehicle appears to make a direct hit at the man without even attempting to slow down. 

No brake lights can be seen as the footage continues to show the man and his wheelchair both being dragged under the wheels of the car and out onto the main road. 

Debris from the chair is then littered across the parking lot as the driver of the pickup strikes the curb.
