A driver of an SUV is assaulted by a mob of motorcyclists on the streets of New York City, all while his wife and two-year-old are in the car. New York police are now on the hunt for the violent pack of bikers.
The terrifying highway show-down is all caught on video, showing between 20-30 bikers surrounding the family of three inside their SUV. The driver plows through them - but it's not over.
Police say what followed was a high-speed chase—with a brutal ending.
“They catch up and one opens the door, but the driver of the SUV floors it and gets away,” CNN’s John Berman reports.
The chase continues off the highway.
“Stuck behind New York City traffic, an enraged biker makes his move, using a helmet to bash in the driver's window.” Police say the driver is then taken out of the car and assaulted.
“The driver did receive stitches at the hospital. He has been released and is doing fine,” Berman says. “The wife and daughter not hurt in that just awful incident.”
"This is a sort of a major stunt event where motorcyclists from various locations come together,” says Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. “Their ultimate goal is to get into Times Square.”
Police are now checking security cameras for any information that could lead to arrests.”
