A pack of bikers pummeled a driver in upper Manhattan on Sunday, after a wild chase that began with a fender bender on the West Side Highway, cops said.
The brawl erupted after the victim — who was driving his wife and their young child — became surrounded by a swarm of motorcycles on the highway and accidentally hit one of the bikes near W. 125th St. about 2 p.m., police said.
But when the driver stopped, several of the bikers began to damage the man’s black Range Rover — so he hit the gas and plowed through three motorcycles before speeding away, cops said.
Miraculously no one was hurt during the getaway, but the angry bikers began to speed down the thoroughfare to catch up with the SUV.
A video taken from a camera mounted on a motorcyclist’s helmet shows the frightful chase along the highway after the accident — which apparently happened after a biker slammed the brakes after cutting the SUV off.
At one point, the motorcycles surround the SUV and a biker runs over to open the door and rip the driver, described only as a man in his 30s, out — but the man manages to drive away before the biker can get him and knocks down at least one more bike.
The chase continues up I-95, where the driver gets off on W. 176th St. But when he is forced to stop at a red light on W. 178th St. near Wadsworth Ave., the bikers attack.
One biker takes off his helmet, which he uses to smash through the driver’s side window. Another man tries to punch through a window to the backseat, where the child was sitting.
The shocking footage, which was posted on YouTube, stops — but police said the bikers beat the driver up and slashed his face.
He was taken to Columbia University Medical Center, where he received stitches for the face wound and was released.
No other injuries were reported.
No arrests were immediately made, but police said they were still investigating the incident.
It was not clear how much damage was caused to the SUV.
Several commenters wrote that the driver was justified to flee.
“I would do exactly the same thing,” one person wrote. “They’re intimidating him and he’s probably fearing for his life.”
