Bikers chase Range Rover in mass road rage attack - video
Riders 'swarm' 4WD in New York after it hits motorbike, smashing windows and 'slashing' driver
UPDATE: Since this story was published two people have been arrested in relation to the pursuit and alleged assault on the Range Rover's driver.
VIDEO of a "terrifying road rage incident" in which a motorbike gang pursues and attacks a Range Rover carrying a two-year-old child has been posted online.
The clip, captured by a camera mounted on the helmet of one of the riders, shows the Range Rover striking one of the motorcyclists and breaking his leg. When the other riders stop and confront the driver, the car races off along Manhattan's West Side Highway, with the bikers in hot pursuit.
When the driver comes to a halt at a set of lights, several riders attack the four-wheel-drive with their crash helmets and spike its tyres. The driver hits the accelerator again, but the vehicle's flat tyres force him to stop. Several riders jump off their bikes and smash the car's windows with their helmets. The driver was allegedly dragged from the car and beaten.
The driver, a 33-year-old man who has not been named, was treated at a local hospital for "slashes" to his face and released, CNN reports. His wife and child who were travelling in the same car were not injured.
Police believe the motorcyclists are part of a gang called Hollywood Stuntz who came to Manhattan to perform bike tricks in Times Square. They are trying to identify the riders, but many of them did not have licence plates on their bikes.
No charges have yet been filed in relation to the incident. ·
