ATLANTA — One Atlanta man is speaking out after a viral video with nearly four million views on Twitter shows his car getting repeatedly stomped on, cracking his windshield, denting his roof and even stalling his car.
It all happened during the crowd chaos on John Wesley Dobbs Avenue near Georgia State's campus on April 2 when street racing, doing donuts, and property was damaged outside of an off-campus student housing complex. One person was also shot at a RaceTrac gas station the following night.
His friends started an online fundraiser on his behalf to help him raise money for therapy and to get it fixed.
Timothy Rogers-Dillard spoke exclusively with 11Alive and said the crowd stomped on his cars -- smashing his windows and damaging his mirror, transmission, windshield, and engine. And now, he said he's having a tough time mentally recovering.
"I seen this young man plunge through my window with his heel," Dillard recalled. "The gentleman had jumped on the engine. And it started to cause the car to stall."
The videos spread all over social media. You can see several people jumping on Rogers-Dillard's blue, 2004 Toyota -- leaving him with no way out and his mom with the damage.
