US: 20 year old woman fatally strikes man she thinks he’s hitting a cat

In the United States, a 20-year-old woman from California fatally hit a man with her car because she thought he was killing a cat. The victim died. The young woman faces a life sentence.

The facts happened on Sunday September 25th in the United States. Hannah Star Esser, 20, thought she saw a man in his 50s run over a cat while driving near Oak Knoll Park in Cypress, California. Faced with this, the young woman decided to get out of her car and equip herself with her phone to film the scene and challenge the man.

According to the American newspaper Los Angeles Times, the situation quickly deteriorated and the tone between Hannah Star Esser and the Fifties quickly rose. At that time, the young woman got back into her car, made a U-turn and then accelerated towards the man.
