    Default Range Rover Runs Over Bikers in NYC



    Video has emerged showing the shocking moment a Range Rover driver apparently drove through a crowd of motorbikes as it fled with its family inside for fear of being attacked.
    According to police, the bikers started to damage the vehicle after the driver accidentally hit a motorcyclist.
    Fearing for the safety of his wife and young child, aged under five, the SUV driver then sped off, hitting several bikers in its path.

    No one has been arrested and police are still investigating and examining the evidence, he said.
    The spokesman said, according to the driver, a large number of motorcyclists were driving 'erratically' and he 'accidentally collided with one'.
    The footage shows one motorcyclist brake hard in front the the car and seems to get bumped by it.
    He pulled over but some of the bikers started to damage the vehicle. The NYPD spokesman told the Mail Online the driver drove off 'to avoid an impending assault'.


    The video shows the Range Rover accelerate suddenly knocking over bikes and motorcyclists, driving over the top of them.
    The footage was captured on a helmet camera of a motorcyclist during an annual bikers' event in New York City, at around 2pm yesterday.

    Shocking moment car ploughs through crowd of bikers.


    The driver speeds away, but immediately the angry bikers follow it and it takes a matter of seconds for them to catch up.
    The footage shows them following the vehicle for several minutes, at times getting close and intimidating the driver.
    The group of bikers take Exit 14, on route 95, following signs for the Cross Bronx Expressway and passing the sign for Henry Hudson Parkway, before they traffic begins to slow.
    The bikers again surround the vehicle, blocking its path and it's forced to stop.

    Seizing an opportunity to confront the driver, one biker dismounts and tries to open the door, but the SUV speeds off again, knocking down at least one more motorcyclist.

    Expressway, then taking the W 176 SI which leads into a built-up area with heavy traffic.
    Forced to stop at traffic lights, the Range Rover comes to a standstill, and within seconds two bikers are off their vehicles and attacking the driver's side windows.

    The first takes off his helmet and throws it against the driver's door window, smashing it; the second tries to punch through the rear door window, where the child was sat.
    The footage then stops.


    One person, whose profile name is Sgt Pepper, says: 'I would do exactly the same thing. They're intimidating him and he's probably fearing for his life.'
    Another, known as 'zacarra' says the driver acted in 'self defense'.
    'Did you see the biker break (sic) check him in the beginning. This poor guy was running for his life from the start,' zacarra writes.
    According to 'meathead12' it was 'justifiable': 'Only a fool would stick around to be pulled out of his car and lynched by 100 bikers.'
    'charlesferg' says the NYC has now banned the riders' annual event.

    The guy who broke to look at the camera was at fault, and because instead of them thinking someone take a pic of the plate, everyone who's plates is seen on video will be charged with aggrevated assault. no matter how "justifiable" it was
