In what was a fit of rage, a man going through a heated divorce was filmed crashing a dump truck into his estranged wife’s South Los Angeles home and also damaging cars that had been parked on the road. 

In the wake of the Sunday incident, Patricia Dunn told ABC7 that the man who went on the rampage was her husband. She said they are in the middle of a divorce and she fears for her life. 

Dunn also said that the section of the home her husband repeatedly drove into and damaged was her bedroom. “A man under that kind of rage – who’s to say what he might do?” Dunn said. “He was trying to kill me. He really was.”

Dunn said her estranged husband came to her home on three occasions. He initially drove there in a Chevy Impala and rammed into the home as she was indoors. He then came back in a dump truck to cause more vandalism before leaving and returning in the Impala. He ended up damaging the section outside Dunn’s bedroom as well as the home’s metal fence. He also drove into cars that had been parked on the street.

“I was just trying to stay out of the way,” Dunn recalled. “So I don’t know if he was drunk or under the influence. I never experienced anything like this in my life.”

Dunn’s neighbor, Journey Meggerson, filmed the incident. Her family also tried to console Dunn. “That was honestly the craziest thing I have ever seen,” Meggerson told ABC7. “I can’t even believe.”

It took around 30 minutes for authorities to respond to the scene because the first call was reported as a traffic collision, not a crime, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said. Dunn also said she intends to seek a restraining order against her husband. 

“Because we are going through a divorce. And he is upset about the fact no contact. He’s verbally abusive and I have nothing nice to say,” she said. Dunn said she is staying with another person as she fears for her life.
