Just because there's a video, it doesn't make it cut-and-dry. Meaning, we have no idea what EXACTLY caused these motorcyclists to think it's okay to swarm an SUV, which would win EVERY TIME in a fight, but we do know that no outcome was going to be a good one.
During a motorcycle free-ride day in NYC, it appears as if a swarm of motorcyclists got too close to an SUV, which accidentally tapped one of the riders. So, with a mob-mentality, it looks like the swarm brought the SUV to a stop in the middle of the highway.
Inside the SUV was a family — a father, mother, and 2 year old daughter. Imagine how scared you would be, and what you would do to protect your family.
What happened after that is brutal… and results in a long chase, which ends with the eventual assault of the driver of the SUV (luckily that part isn't shown). He was put into the hospital with multiple injuries and lacerations after they broke his window to get at him — ALL IN FRONT OF HIS FAMILY.
At least one of the bikers has since been arrested (the one causing the initial accident: Christopher Cruz, 28, charged with reckless endangerment, reckless driving, endangering the welfare of a child and menacing), and the cops have spoken at length with the SUV driver as well.
Watch the video above if you want — it IS terrifying!
