Disturbing dashcam footage has been posted online showing a pedestrian being struck by a car in Glendale Saturday — and then being run over by an SUV while lying motionless on the ground.

The horrifying video, which was uploaded to Twitter Monday, has gone viral generating nearly 550,000 views. The video was posted by NYC Scoop, a social media page that posts about crime and traffic-related incidents in New York City.

The video captures a pedestrian in the crosswalk at the intersection of Cypress Avenue and Cooper Avenue at around 6:10 p.m.

The pedestrian, walking northbound with the traffic signal, is struck by the driver of a white-colored vehicle as the victim approaches the center of the crosswalk on Cypress Avenue. The driver was traveling southbound on Cooper Avenue and then made a left turn through the crosswalk onto Cypress Avenue, police said.

The victim then falls backward onto the concrete after being hit and the pedestrian’s head crashes against the ground to a thudding sound. The driver of the car doesn’t appear to stop, the footage shows.

As the victim is sprawled motionless on the ground, the driver of a black-colored SUV — traveling directly behind the white vehicle and following the same route — makes a left turn through the crosswalk and then rolls over the victim’s head, the dashcam video shows.

A woman can be heard frantically shouting “no, no” and then screaming while other drivers can be heard honking their horns.

The SUV driver stops momentarily and then moves forward, appearing to drag the victim beneath the vehicle. The rear wheels then seem to roll over the victim as the driver keeps going forward and moves out of the dashcam shot.

The victim can then be seen breathing heavily facing up, in a pool of blood on the ground, the footage shows.

Police said the pedestrian was transported to Jamaica Hospital where the victim’s condition is currently unknown. The victim’s identity has not yet been released.

A police spokesperson was unsure whether any arrests have been made.

Long Island City teen sentenced in fatal shooting of ‘beloved’ school teacher at Queensbridge Houses in 2020: DA

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.
