(CNN) – Police are searching for a man who plowed his car into a crowd outside of a bar in Tampa. The entire incident was caught on surveillance camera.

The video captured by a nearby surveillance camera shows the fight break out as punches are exchanged. You see the front end of a black sedan on the left side of your screen. Now take a close look at the tires. It appears the man behind the wheel is trying to leave.

“It appears he got hung up on the curb. He was turning the tires one way or another and we believe the engine was gunning at some point. So I don’t know if he had in in neutral or but it would appear he was trying to get up over the curb.”

Those who were there that night, described the melee.

Carlos, an eyewitness said “It was really chaotic, it happened really fast. I mean it was like the blink of an eye.”

The car then barrels into the crowd. Most are able to escape to safety, but 25-year old Michael Silhol, a server at the nearby Columbia restaurant is hit. The driver then gets out of the car and takes off on foot. Silhol leaps over the car and stumbles to the sidewalk outside the bar where he collapses.

Police have a pretty good idea of who that driver is since they do have his car. They are still trying to find him and figure out why he did this. At the very least he will face a hit and run charge.
