A motorcyclist in California went for a wild ride chasing down a driver after witnessing a hit-and-run. The driver of one of the struck cars then confronts the man, who drives off from the scene despite the smashed-in front end.
The video was shot by a motorcyclist/vlogger named, um, Dick Danger, a name that suggests a previous career in the adult cinema industry. The Mercedes driver was later identified as Nathanial Sylvester, 62. First, there’s the determination of the driver of that 2008-ish Mercedes-Benz S-Class to be a colossal dick and hit three cars and then take off running, there’s the determination of the biker to not let him get away with it, and then there’s the determination of that S-Class to keep driving with pretty severe damage. It then clips the back of a pickup truck and smashes into a Toyota Prius stopped at a light, crumpling the front section of the Mercedes and leaving debris on the roadway.
Danger then jumped on his motorcycle and gave chase. Danger said he moved into the right lane, and that was when he noticed the driver had gone into the wrong lane, and was nearly involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle.
At one point the man pulls into an animal emergency clinic and parks as Dick Danger tells police the location.
At one point the bumper of the crashed Mercedes falls off and almost hits Danger. The driver exited the auto to say, in hilarious understatement, “I was wrong”.
Eventually the driver of the auto, stops and gets out and confronts Danger. They can say what they want to say but I was wrong and I should’ve pulled over.
‘You’re right man, you’re right, ‘ the driver said. He was arrested for suspicion of DUI. “I really didn’t want to chase the guy, I didn’t want to get involved”.
Danger said he made a split second decision to chase the driver, as he appeared to be under the influence and might hurt or kill someone.
