Driver Accidentally Hit Motorcyclist and Fled: Was Caught and Beat
After accidentally hitting a motorcyclist who was maneuvering in between vehicles dangerously, Alexian Lien’s Range Rover was attacked by a raging mob of angry motorcyclists. The man had hit the biker and then feared for the safety of his wife and 5 year old child. As the angry mob of bikers pursued the Range Rover, Lien was caught in bumper to bumper traffic. After the bikers smashed the window, Lien was beaten severely.
The problem wasn’t only the one accident with one biker. The Range Rover driver attempted to escape the rage of the oncoming bikers and in escaping hit several others as he tried to escape. If the mob wasn’t angry before, hitting several more bikers likely drove their insanity to the tipping point, as they chased the car to hurt and injure the people inside of it.
The footage of the event was captured on someone’s helmet camera at the annual biker’s event in New York City. The bikers were shown in the video taking matters into their own hands breaking the windows of the car. The man was beaten severely and he is currently in the hospital. Police are currently investigating, and there are no other serious injuries noted at this time. The annual Biker meetup is no longer allowed to be in New York City. 15 people were arrested and 55 motorcycles were confiscated, breaking up the massive groups.
