Footage has surfaced showing the horrifying moment a 39-year-old Lakinta Cosby killed a man after she ran him over in the middle of a street in Dallas after an altercation.

Police said Lakinta Cosby, who has previously been arrested for prostitution, is facing a murder charge after she ran down 36-year-old Sherron Berry on Saturday afternoon.

The 39-year-old was driving a white vehicle when she was recorded on surveillance footage coming to a stop in the middle of a street, while Berry walked in the opposite direction next to the sidewalk, The Dallas Morning News reported.

As Berry walked past the SUV, Cosby makes an illegal U-turn, hits the sidewalk, and goes after him.

Berry is then seen running for his life before the vehicle ran him over, however, the moment of impact is out of the shot on the other side of the building.

Police reports indicate that Berry died in the collision.

The 36-year-old, who had a long criminal history for everything from robbery, to drugs offenses, and assault, was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Cosby turned herself into authorities on Saturday evening, where she confessed to running Berry over after a domestic incident.

She was booked into the Dallas County jail. Her bail has not yet been set.
