A biker gang clashes with a terrified family in this riveting road-rage video captured Sunday on New York City’s West Side Highway.
At the 27-second mark you can see a Range Rover bump into a biker’s rear tire after the rider appears to slow down in front of the SUV. A mob of fellow bikers — reportedly of the Hollywood Stuntz gang — surrounds the SUV, which was driven by a man “fearing for the safety of his wife and young child” the Daily Mail reports.
The New York Post reports the driver is Alexian Lien, whose wife and 2-year-old daughter were in the car.
At the 50-second mark all hell breaks loose as the SUV emerges from the pack — running over bikes and bikers in the process.
The gang gives chase, and at a stoplight (5-minute mark) there is again a tense confrontation and again the SUV strikes a biker.
The pursuit continues and eventually ends when the Range Rover’s slashed tires go flat — followed by a brutal assault as bikers smash the SUV’s windows, drag out the driver, and reportedly slash his face and chest.
A post on LiveLeak that originally shared the video claimed one person was killed in the incident, but that was not corroborated.
However, one arrest has been made, the Post reports:
Christopher Cruz, 28, of Passaic, New Jersey, was charged with reckless endangerment, reckless driving, endangering the welfare of a child and menacing in the first of two harrowing confrontations Alexian Lien had with a pack of bikers when he and his family were out for a Sunday drive.
Reginald Chance has been named as the "most vicious" of the bikers who allegedly attacked Alexian Lien in the road rage attack video that went viral.Click here to read more
