California AA Accident Attorneys

Gardena, CA (August 31, 2018) – Gardena Police Department is seeking the public’s help in finding a suspect involved in a brutal attack on a disabled veteran in Gardena that was caught on camera earlier this week. Authorities say that Joshua Byrd, a retired soldier who served 2 tours of duty in Iraq, was walking his service dog outside of a business complex where he works in the 13000 block of Cimarron Avenue. Sometime around 6:30 p.m. Monday evening. Byrd noticed a driver throwing out trash from his window into the street near Byrd’s workplace. Byrd asked the driver to pick up the trash and when the driver did not respond, Byrd picked up the piece of trash and placed it inside the driver’s vehicle through the sunroof. The driver remained near the business complex and then began cursing at the disabled veteran. “He’s getting out the car and he threw a couple bottles of pee at me,” Byrd told authorities. “So there was urine in a container and he was throwing it at me. Luckily none of it got on me.” Byrd then went into the road in order to snap a photo of the driver’s license plate when the driver accelerated and struck the veteran. “He just makes another U-turn and guns it straight toward me at about 35, 40 mph and hits me,” Byrd said.

First responders arrived and transported Byrd to a nearby hospital. Byrd suffered a fractured wrist, sprained ankle, whiplash, road rash and bruising, and had to get stitches on his face. The service dog was not injured during the collision. Gardena Police Lt. Steve Prendergast said the department is treating this case as an assault with a deadly weapon. Byrd described the suspect as a heavyset African-American male measuring around 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Gardena Police Department at 310-217-9600.
