It was a typical Sunday afternoon for the Lien family driving along a New York City highway – that is until they were terrorized by a group of motorcyclists.
According to police, Alexian Lien, along with his wife and toddler, were driving on the West Side Highway around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday when his SUV got into an accident with one of the bikers who had stopped sudden somewhere near 125th Street. Christopher Cruz, 28, of Passaic, allegedly swerved his bike in front of Lien’s SUV, causing the driver to bump him.
After Lien pulled over, he was quickly surrounded by 20 to 30 bikers who began damaging his Range Rover, police said. Based on a report by the Associated Press, Lien while trying to flee, struck two other bikers, including Jeremiah Mieses, 26, of Lawrence, Mass. The other bikers gave chase, pursuing him for about 2 1/2 miles, and again surrounded the vehicle. Once the bikers caught up with the SUV, they pulled Lien from the SUV and beat him, according to police.
