Believe or not the guy goes by this name. Just as expected of a victim with such a name, he forgave the person that had hit him with the car. The Lord Jesus Christ was actually hit by a woman. The only problem that the car driver had was that the police did not forgive her. She ran down the victim on a Massachusetts crosswalk.
The man is 50 years of age and hails from the town of Belchertown. After checking his id and passport the police officers were able to confirm that his name was indeed Lord Jesus Christ. The man luckily suffered only minor injuries on his face. He was treated at a local hospital and released on the same day. This was according to the republican.
The driver was clearly in fault as Christ was in a marked crosswalk at the time of the accident. This was according to Captain Scott Savino.
