Teen Attacked After Knocking Down Motorcyclists
BELMONT, Calif. (AP) — A teenage driver is banged up after police say he was attacked by a group of motorcyclists after he knocked down two motorcyclists on Highway 101 Sunday morning.
California Highway Patrol Officer Art Montiel says the trouble began around 8 a.m. when a 19-year-old man behind the wheel of Toyota Prius was shooting video of the motorcyclists as they made their way north on the highway through Belmont.
Montiel says as the teen was recording the video, he lost control of his car, knocking down two of the motorcyclists.
After the accident, some of the motorcyclists attacked the teen, punching him in the head and threatening him with a knife. Montiel says when officers arrived there were about 20 motorcyclists at the scene, including at least two members of the Hells Angels.
The teen was cited for distracted driving. He and the two motorcyclists were treated for minor injuries.
