The moment he slid off the hood he was under the wheels of the car. You also have to take into account what the driver is capable of doing "in the heat of the moment."
If the driver was startled to the point of being in "fight or flight" mode, and he chose to flee the danger, the totality of the situation coupled with the number of seconds before it was all over severely limits ones physical ability to change the action of what their brain has already decided to do initially.
From the moment the guys butt hit the hood of the car until he was being run over with the rear tires was 4.8 seconds.
From the moment the driver started the action to flee, (indicated by the puff of smoke exiting the exhaust and the vehicle starting to move forward), until the man was being run over was 3.3 seconds.
From the moment the guy slid off the hood until he was run over was 0.71 seconds.
Also the vehicle behind him was no more than 2.5 - 3 feet directly behind him, his only avenue of escape was to drive forward.
There's also the circumstances surrounding this event in it's totality and what specific information was known to the driver at the moment. For all we know, he could have been in the middle of the carjack capital of that particular Country.
On the basis of an 8 second video clip, you already have him convicted of attempted murder?
Whew, it's a good thing we allow expert witness testimony in our court proceedings. Because sometimes, some jury members need to be educated on certain matters. Such things as physics, physiological processes which take place in the human body, the time it takes for the brain to react to certain stimulus as well as the time it takes to change that decision once the brain has given orders to respond with a certain course of action. Also the psychological effects of being suddenly thrust into a dangerous and frightened state of awareness and action when moments ago, no threat was perceived on the horizon.
Yes, there is always the potential of a juror who is incapable of learning about such phenomenon and will vote solely on their emotions.
So thank the lord, we also have what's called a "hung jury" and a mistrial to handle that aspect as well.
