The incident happened on US 41 and County Line Road around 5:35 p.m. on Monday. According to witness, Abe Garcia, who captured the incident on video, the driver of the motorcycle confronted the driver of the car after he witnessed the car cut the motorcyclist off.
“The guy driving the car was driving recklessly, like crazy out of control,” Garcia said. “I saw him almost run one of the bikers over, like off the side of the road. So, then the bikers caught up to him at a red light and words started exchanging, and then the guy went complete psychopath.”
That’s when Garcia said the driver, who has not been identified, deliberately tried to run the man and woman over.
“The guy tried to kill them,” Garcia said. “It was a red light and then it turned green. He could’ve just gone straight, but he went for the biker.”
WFTS reached out to the Florida Highway Patrol and is awaiting an official report.
Garcia said the driver was arrested down the road about five minutes later by FHP.
Both passengers on the motorcycle were taken to the hospital.
