According to reports, the Toyota, which was covered in an anti-Trump, pro-Biden vehicle wrap, was stopped at a red light when it was surrounded by people with flags, chanting, "Four more years." When the light changed, the driver, who was seen wearing a blonde wig, small top hat, and a red and black shirt, claims to have been in fear for their safety. Lifting their foot from the brake, the truck advanced forward making contact with the victim who fell to the driver's side of the truck. The driver claims to have seen the person but did not think they were stuck by the vehicle.

Reports claim the victim was under the influence of alcohol.

Cape Coral Police are investigating.
