Dirt bike gang brutally beats driver on California highway

The witness who videotaped the incident called 911 and was one of those who stopped to help the victim, who was "really in agony" after suffering a broken leg, a bloodied face and road rash on his arms, the witness told KNTV. Police in San Francisco are trying to figure what may have led to a horrific episode of road rage in which an Uber driver was swarmed by more than a dozen bikers, and when he got out of his vehicle, was beaten.

In a few minutes captured on videos that have played across the country, the Lyft driver was harassed and then surrounded by up to 15 gang members on dirt bikes on Highway 101 in San Francisco on Wednesday evening.

Before Alex exited his auto, one of the bikers in a red sweatshirt began punching the rear side windows of the Toyota.

The 32-year-old man says he was heading to pick up a passenger when he tried to inch around the dirt bikers, who were doing stunts and blocking southbound traffic near the Cesar Chavez exit. When the driver attempted to get out of the vehicle, he was badly beaten, left with a broken leg before the members of what KRON 4 reports is "a known local bike gang" fled.

It happened Wednesday on one San Francisco's busiest freeways.


In the video, the bikers are shown without helmets and taking up multiple lanes. "But it makes me angry because they picked an innocent person".

"I don't know what was said to who or who said what", Officer Vu Williams of the California Highway Patrol told The Chronicle.

A woman who identified herself as the victim's sister told the Chronicle that her brother is a new father and an Uber driver in the city.

Witnesses rushed to Quintana's aid following the attack and he was later taken to the hospital.

Quintana lives in Modesto but makes the 90-mile trip into San Francisco at least three times a week to work as a driver.
