Bikers arrested after attack
NEW YORK (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Two bikers are now in custody and facing charges for the road rage attack in New York on Sunday.
Video of that assault taken by one of the bikers has since gone viral.
But now the family of one of the bikers is calling for charges to also be filed against the SUV driver.
The video showed the SUV tapping one of the bikes after the group slowed traffic to a halt on the highway.
After that the driver of the SUV was attacked.
Fearing for his life he sped off, hitting three of the bikers, including 32-year-old Edwin Mieses.
His family says he is now paralyzed and in a coma.
"My husband got off his bike to help the guy and whatever he did, he got scared, he went and peeled off and he paralyzed my husband on the way," said Dayana Mieses.
Police say they are still looking through the video footage and the investigation is on-going.
The SUV driver was chased for several miles, then pulled from his vehicle and beaten.
