Generally, hit-and-run incidents involve filing a detailed description of the offending vehicle in a report to the authorities and hoping the will be caught. In this case, though, a motorcyclist picked the wrong person to clip and then try to speed away from. They were not only chased down, but the whole incident was also caught on a camera mounted on the bumper.
According to the video’s description on YouTube, a man on a “crotch rocket” was passing the driver of a 2006 Subaru WRX Limited going at least 80 miles per hour. In the process though, the motorcyclist clipped car’s the front bumper.
“Then they try to take off and out run me. After realizing that I was keeping up they finally gave up,” the poster of the YouTube video with the name “findurpath” wrote.
Watch the nearly three minutes showing the hit-and-run, chase and confrontation (Warning: Strong language):
“findurpath,” or James, contacted the blog Jalopnik with his story and even provided them with more information. James described the conversation he had with the offending biker as “alarming and surprisingly calm.” The man who clipped James said, “Dude, I so did not mean to do that.” Here’s more from what James told Jalopnik:
I tore him a new one though and he was shaking and completely freaked out that he had his life flash before his eyes and that a car was able to keep up with him.
Kept saying how cool the car was etc etc, but was apologizing the whole time.
He denied at first that he was trying to run away and that he was just trying to catch up with some friends further up the road. But after I told him that I had the whole thing on video, he knew he was caught.
James said his car didn’t suffer too much damage and that a report of the incident was filed with highway patrol.
