Another day, another attack by a crazy Leftist that the mainstream media doesn’t seem to care to report.
A driver told authorities he intentionally struck an 11-year-old girl on a scooter “because she was white,” according to a report released Saturday by the Draper Police Department.
The report said the driver, Steven Becky, 19, was described by officers on the scene as “engaging in erratic behavior. The behavior was described as uncooperative, aggressive, and non-sympathetic toward the child victim.”
The incident occurred just before 8:30 a.m. Friday, when the girl riding her scooter in a residential area at 15051 S. Winged Bluff Lane was hit by a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta. The car then continued into a yard, hit a landscape boulder and rolled.
A witness told police that the driver walked toward the injured girl and said, “We all have to die sometime,” and described him as having “‘charged’ the victim in an aggressive manner,” and attempting to leave the scene, the report said.
The child was a friend of one of Becky’s young cousins, and was known to the suspect, Eining said. The girl was transported with serious injuries to Primary Children’s Hospital for treatment.
Becky, who suffered minor injuries when he drove into a landscape boulder and rolled the 2010 Jetta he was driving, was treated at a local hospital, then released to police.
Eining said Friday that the investigation was still in its early stages, but having a clear recording of the incident allowed them to file charges quickly.
“The video shows everything that occurred,” Eining said. “Videos are pristine. They are nice to have.”
Because that part of Draper is in Utah County, Becky was booked into the Utah County Jail.
The video shows “the car that is going northbound in the road, making a hard right turn into this young gal,” Eining said. “This is not what you describe as someone veering or drifting into this gal. This is someone who turned into this gal.”
Court documents, filed by an officer of the Draper Police Department, say that at the scene, Becky was “observed by officers engaging in erratic behavior.
“The behavior was described as uncooperative, aggressive, and non sympathetic towards the child victim. From Becky’s actions and statements, Officers believed he was impaired by an unknown substance(s).”
The witness told police that Becky attempted to leave the scene, so the witness restrained him.
“(The witness) said in his statement that the male attempted to leave and Ronald had to restrain him until authorities arrived. While being held down Becky admitted to using, Xanax and marijuana,” the probable cause statement says.
Transported to Intermountain Medical Center, “Becky told the doctor he used LSD and mushrooms,” the statement says.
Becky waived his Miranda Rights and agreed to speak with detectives. During the interview, Becky stated that he intentionally hit the victim, ‘because she was white.’
“It is believed that the suspect, Steven Becky used his vehicle to run the victim over,” the police statement concluded.
It is also believed that the suspect was under the influence while driving. Driving under the influence causing serious bodily injury.
All this is validated through video and comments made by the suspect.
Eining said that Becky apparently knew the 11-year-old because he was staying with a family member whose child is friends with the victim.
The 11-year-old was taken to the hospital in serious condition. Becky was booked into jail on suspicion of attempted criminal homicide and DUI with serious bodily injury.
Becky’s bail has been set at $255,000.
