The girlfriend is then pulled forward by the vehicle and falls to the road, after being unable to hold onto the door handle. The truck then veers off to the left and runs over her legs.
The man filming in the car behind them then jumps out of his vehicle to continue filming, as Kueber gets out of his truck and runs toward the victim, yelling at her: “What are you doing? God damn it.”
Kueber can then be seen crouching down next to his girlfriend — who can be heard wailing in agony — as he again shouts, “What are you doing?”
He then tries to lift his girlfriend away from the scene, while witnesses stand around them, filming the incident on their phones.
“Come on, put your arms around my neck,” Kueber tells the victim, who appears either unable or unwilling to do so, as she continues to cry out in pain throughout the rest of the video.
Witnesses then called 911, and State Troopers arrived to arrest Kueber.
The extent of the woman’s injuries was not disclosed in the trooper dispatch, reports KINY Radio.
Kueber was later jailed at the Fairbanks Correctional Center on charges of first-degree assault, third-degree criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, and reckless driving.
