A man violently hit two people with his car after a bar fight early Saturday (May 26) morning outside the Sports Page Bar, Mountain View police reported.

Police responded at 2 a.m. to reports of a traffic collision at the bar, located at the corner of N. Shoreline Boulevard and Plymouth Street in Mountain View’s North Bayshore neighborhood.

Officers arrived and learned that a man and a woman had gotten into an argument with another man at the bar. When the two people attempted to leave, the suspect got in his car and drove at them, police said.

The man and the woman became pinned under the suspect’s vehicle as he attempted to drive away, police said.

Bystanders then approached the suspect’s vehicle, pulled him out of the drivers seat and attacked him, police said. Other bystanders freed the man and woman by flipping the car over.

The man, the woman and the suspect suffered injuries and were taken to the hospital.

Police are still investigating the case and have not released the extent of the victim’s injuries or the names of the people who were involved.
