KTLA reports, four people were arrested Monday after allegedly skipping out on their bill at an Anaheim-area restaurant and striking a waitress who said it was a “miracle” she survived the hit-and-run.
The victim, Maria Uriostegui, tells reporters she had waited on the customers and had a bad sense about them as soon as they sat down.
When the group didn’t pay their bill she followed them as they left the restaurant and confronted them.
“They just walked out and I went to tell them, ‘I’m sorry, you guys forgot to pay your bill,’” Uriostegui said. “The four of them turned around, looked at me, laughed, and just kept walking to their car.”
She went to the parking lot to take down their license plate and that’s when she said they ran her over.
KTLA-TV has surveillance video from the restaurant showing the moment of impact, with the vehicle rolling right over the waitress.
The mother of two was hospitalized with minor to moderate injuries.
“It’s a miracle. I’m very blessed to be here today,” Uriostegui said.
24-year-old Rowshaid Pellum, was charged with one felony count each of aggravated assault and hit-and-run with injury.
Santeea Munay Ralph, 23, Shyteice Lashay Miles, 19, and Markeisha Michelle Williams, 18, were each charged with one misdemeanor count of defrauding an innkeeper.
