Horrifying surveillance footage captured the moment a bicycle-riding California doctor was mowed down by a car at a busy Dana Point intersection — followed by the driver exiting his vehicle and allegedly stabbing him to death.
Ring camera footage from a nearby home shows Dr. Michael John Mammone, 58, flying over the hood of a white Lexus in the Crown Valley Parkway intersection on the Pacific Coast Highway around 3 p.m. Wednesday.
Officials previously confirmed the suspect, Vanroy Evan Smith, 39, then got out of his car brandishing a knife, and inflicted more injuries upon Mammone.
Police are reportedly still trying to determine the motive of the horrific and fatal attack, but a neighbor reportedly told ABC7 she heard Smith muttering about “white privilege” after hearing what sounded like a “gunshot.”
Mammone, an emergency room doctor, was pronounced dead at the hospital. He is survived by his wife Julie, a nurse, and two sons, Nick and Jon.
Heroic bystanders were able to apprehend Smith and hold him for police. He has now been charged with murder and is being held on a $1 million bond.
Police reportedly recovered a knife at the scene as well.

Dr. Michael Mammone was run over & stabbed to death by Vanroy Evan Smith. As Smith carried out the frenzied attack he screamed about ‘white privilege’. This is the end result of the media & the establishment’s constant anti-white narrative. pic.twitter.com/aE0wXOnV3a
