Accused murderer Vanroy Evan Smith
Vanroy Evan Smith, 39, the man accused of striking a biking doctor with his Lexus and then fatally stabbing the victim has been charged with murder.
Orange County, Commie California – A bicyclist was struck by a driver then fatally stabbed on Pacific Coast Highway and Crown Valley Parkway in Dana Point on Wednesday afternoon in what is believed to be a racially motivated attack.
The Gateway Pundit obtained Ring/surveillance video from a nearby home showing the driver striking the bicyclist.
The video, whichdecided not to post because it is too gruesome, shows the driver of a white Lexus quickly accelerating, striking the cyclist and sending him flying into the air.
Smith then quickly exited his vehicle and stabbed the victim.
The victim, identified as 58-year-old Michael John Mammone, a Laguna Beach ER doctor, died at the hospital.

According to ABC 7, a neighbor who witnessed the attack heard the suspect uttering racial slurs about “white privilege.”
“ABC7 spoke with a neighbor who declined to be interviewed on camera. She said her family heard what sounded like a “gunshot” before the attack. When they ran outside, she said, they heard the suspect uttering racial slurs about “white privilege.”” the outlet reported.
