Extreme Road Rage Incident with a Range Rover Plowing through a Biker Group [Video]
text size: A- A+
According to the footage, it appears that the Range Rover accidentally bumped in the rear wheel of one of the bikers. Small surprise to see this incident growing into an extreme road rage, knowing how the behavior of all people change when assembled in large groups.
However, what happened is really frightening, as the bikers show a rather aggressive behavior towards the Range Rover driver. As he stopped, several riders appear to attack the man's car. According to the police, he was driving with his wife and child and reportedly feared for his and their safety. So he hit the gas and drive straight through the bikers, making a crazy getaway.
As things could not end here, many riders gave chase and pursued him to upper Manhattan, where he had nowhere to go because of the stopped traffic on W. 178th St. near Wadsworth Ave. It is here where other bikers used their helmets to smash the windows of the Range Rover, as you can see in the video.
The man in his 30s was admitted to the hospital with cuts and bruises, as police sources quoted by NY Daily News claim the driver was beaten and received facial wounds. Police reports that no other bikers were hurt.
What's also weird is how did the Range Rover get in the middle of the riders in the first place. We've seen one or two fellows who would not drive behind a large bike assembly, and such scenarios always ended in a bad way.
No arrests have been made so far and a police investigation is underway. We'll bring you news on this sad incident, as we believe there will be a heap of law suits filed quite soon.

a bunch of IDIOTS really brave "men" you all should be more than ashamed of yourselves for such conduct. anybody who thinks this type of behaviour is acceptable is in the same boat. look at the very beginning, the Instigator is on the bike! it does not excuse the suv driver but put yurself in that position how would you react? puts a very poor light on anybody who rides and takes it seriously.

There's this unwritten,, "common-sense" rule when it comes to driving the highways. Number one: Be aware of your surroundings at ALL times. Number two: Do ALL you can to avoid confrontations and put everyone OUT of harms way. Certainly this SUV driver became aware of the biker's presence AND the potential danger,, early on (either when he drove upon them,, or when they all drove upon him). At that VERY instant,, he (the SUV Driver) SHOULD have focused on immediately (or asap) getting OUT of their way! He should have quickly and carefully worked his way to the far right. He should have then, taken the very first exit,, OR hopped upon the shoulder, and then PARK his posterior right there (for the next 15 minutes if necessary) until ALL bikers had passed! Did he do that? Obviously he did not. Next, the SUV driver HAD to have done something to have ticked off the bikers. He was either driving too slow for them (blocking their progress) or he negligently drove dangerously close to one of the bikers, or he stared at one of the bikers extra long, something like that. In other words, the SUV driver was NOT,, totally (and innocently) minding his own business. His action was probably NOT a deliberate malice act (it was probably a human negligent act on his part) but that SUV driver obviously committed SOME kind of "no-no" (towards the bikers) to provoke them to chase after him, and beat him like they did. So there you go.
