[Ed. – The real news: police haven’t decided if it was terrorism.  Hey, there could be a dozen reasons for crashing into someone in the name of Allah.]

Scott Alcala was driving to San Jose to play golf with his father, when he says he was hit by another car.

Witnesses say a car going extremely fast swerved into Alcala, causing him to fish tail and cross into oncoming traffic.

Alcala said, “I saw the suburban coming right at me about to T-bone right into the driver door and I thought that was it. A second later I turned my head and just smashed into the barrier.”

Alcala says he and the other driver were miraculously able to get out of their cars without hitting anyone else.

Alcala said, “The off-duty police officer went to talk to the other driver in his vehicle and he said, ‘Are you alright? That was way too fast,’ and (the driver) said ‘I did it on purpose. It was in the name of Allah.'”

The police report says driver Ameer Abbaf Fakhraldin told police the collision was caused by Donald Trump’s improper treatment of minorities, and by Allah and other people’s lack of faith in him. Fakhraldin estimated his speed was 200 miles per hour.
