A California man was pulled out from his truck and beaten to death on the street for intentionally targeting pedestrians from behind his wheel.

Melguin Lopez Santos, 40, was killed early Saturday morning after he was kicked out Rock It Sports Lounge and Grill in Hawthorne for being a “nuisance.”

Santos left but later returned to drive his vehicle onto the sidewalk in a bid to hit customers and pedestrians around the area.

“Surrounding patrons then attempted to take the driver out of his vehicle, but he accelerated and drove his truck into a nearby building,” police said.
