Whitaker, 40, is now charged with two counts of attempted homicide, two counts of aggravated assault, theft, reckless endangerment, and other charges.
Notably, the Dodge Durango SUV belonged to a nurse who thought that Whitaker was having a medical emergency and ran to his aide. Whitaker walked by her and stole her SUV and proceeded to plow into a delivery truck head-on.
Whitaker suffered injuries as did Surendra Patel, the store owner, who suffered head, chest and leg injuries. It may need some explaining for Patel when he fails for insurance in a car accident and puts the location as inside his store.
