A street surveillance camera in western Mexico captured the shocking moment a truck driver mowed down three men – killing two – after they allegedly mugged him at gunpoint.

A security camera mounted near an intersection shows the assailants walking on a sidewalk before they crossed the street.

The truck driven by Victor then subsequently appeared in the footage before it accelerated and slammed into them.   

Video recorded by a witness at the scene showed one of the muggers who survived the accident pinned under the truck.

The gun that was used in the mugging was found lying underneath the rear of the truck. 

Victor can be heard in the video telling the witness that he had been robbed earlier as the other two suspects could be spotted lying on the ground unresponsive.
