Brentwood: Man Injured after Grabbing Car Door, Face Plants into Street

by ECT

At 11:37 am Saturday, the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District and Contra Costa County Sheriffs Office responded to a report of a vehicle versus pedestrian at Anderson Lane at Lone Tree Way in Brentwood.

The male sustained major injuries including a head injury after reportedly tried to open the door of a vehicle. With a burst of speed, the vehicle accelerated with the male still holding the door before letting go and hitting the ground.

Engine 53 requested a medical helicopter was requested, but due to a nearly 40-minute response time as the local helicopter was on scene at another incident, they opted for ground transport.

The Contra Costa County Sheriffs Office is investigating the incident but believe this was not a carjacking attempt.

I don’t understand! What about the plants? What kind of plants were those? Cactus? Venus Fly Traps? Was the guy trying to carjack a vehicle? The way this is written, it is quite confusing? Was his face in the plants? Were they flowers?

It is not rocket science, someone grabbed the door, the vehicle spend off with him still holding on and injured himself.

Yeah! I read this story and also wondered what he was doing with those plants. Maybe he was delivering them to someone and they turned on him! Man-eating plants? Sweet Jesus! Like we don’t have enough problems with this Chinese virus! Now we have to fight plants, too!

I sure hope the plants were not damaged. Someone may have spent a lot of time creating a nice arrangement for Mothers Day.

I love the English language! So ambiguous. Can you imagine a foreigner trying to learn English and reads this?
