Eerie ‘demonic’ motive revealed after video showed driver plowing into couple sending victim through a brick wall –

A DRIVER has claimed that “the devil told him to kill people” after plowing into a couple, sending one victim into a brick wall.

One of the crash survivors is in a medically induced coma after she was “intentionally” run over by the heavy duty pickup truck.

Lisa Lenahan was walking with her partner, Kirt Haeward, when the truck smashed into the couple.

“It’s really a horrible tragedy,” the couple’s attorney Chris Goodnow told KOLD.

“The two were unsuspecting that the hit was going to come.”

The couple – parents to four children and grandparents to six – were on their daily stroll through their Phoenix, Arizona neighborhood at around 7.30am on Monday.

The alleged assailant was driving a lifted, heavy-duty pickup truck when he mowed down the couple.

A nearby surveillance camera captured the horrific collision and aftermath.

Police say 49-year-old Refugio Barraza Torres was the driver who allegedly intentionally turned the wheel to hit the couple.

The couple’s attorney said that Lenahan was hit first and knocked to the ground.

Lenahan noticed the oncoming truck at the last minute, leaving her with too little time to evade the vehicle.

Haeward ran to Lenahan after the collision, only to get hit himself.

The driver came back and rammed Haeward through a nearby brick retainer wall, according to the lawyer.

“When you look at the footage, it’s basically a small miracle they are alive right now,” Goodnow said.

Lenahan was put in a medically induced coma after suffering brain bleeding, multiple broken bones in the face, and a fractured ankle.

Haeward was released from the hospital on Wednesday after breaking multiple ribs.

He is still in pain but is being cared for by his family.

The family now waits at the couple’s home, hoping Lenahan can pull through.

“They’ve been separated,” Goodnow said.

“Kirt is dealing with his own injuries but thinking heavily of Lisa.”

Family and friends have set up a GoFundMe in hopes to cover the couple’s medical bills.

The driver allegedly told cops that he was having issues with his brain and that the devil told him to kill three people, KOLD reported citing court documents.

When cops asked Torres if he killed three people, he reportedly replied: “I think so.”

The court docs also stated that Torres’ wife noticed her husband had been acting strange all week, while other family members claimed Torres was taking random medications.

Torres has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault.
