A group of motorcyclists in NYC chased and then attacked the driver of a Range Rover after he ran over one of their fellow bikers.
The 33-year-old driver of the Range Rover was driving north on Manhattan’s West Side Highway with his wife and 2-year-old child around 2pm on Sunday, September 29, when he found himself surrounded by a group of motorcyclists.
Video recorded the motorcycles slowing down as they surrounded the SUV and the SUV then tapping the fender of a motorcyclist in the group. 20 to 30 bikers surrounded the SUV and started gesturing at him.
The motorcyclists then began damaging the Range Rover, slashing one of the tires, causing the driver to take off and flee north and then exit the highway as his tire deflated.
As he was attempting to flee, the SUV driver hit a motorcyclist before speeding off, causing the entire group of bikers to chase after him. The motorcyclist’s leg was broken in the collision.
The Range Rover driver slowed down enough at one point for a motorcyclist to get off his bike, run up to the SUV and open to driver’s side door before the SUV fled again.
Finally, when the SUV came to a stop, motorcyclists ran up to the Range Rover and one biker started smashing the driver-side window of the vehicle.
The bikers then assaulted the driver. The wife and child were unharmed. The driver was taken to Columbia Medical Center where he was treated and received stiches.
No arrests have been made yet.
