‘The guy tried to kill them’ – driver faces attempted murder charge after appearing to run down bikers.
Robert Vance is facing attempted murder charges after appearing to deliberately run down a pair of motorcyclists on Memorial Day.
The shocking incident was captured on camera, and shows the man in a silver Pontiac driving into the two riders while they were stopped at lights.
The New York Daily News says the alleged offender – Robert Vance – was arrested shortly afterwards.
He now faces a raft of charges including two counts of attempted murder, and as he has a poor driving history, has been charged as a “habitual traffic offender”.
The riders – named as Joseph Calderazzo and Melanie Milinkovich – were taken to hospital but did not suffer serious injury.
The man behind the camera – Abe Garcia – told WFTS-TV that an argument broke out at a red light after Vance allegedly nearly ran one of the bikers over.
“The guy went complete psychopath,” he said.
“The guy tried to kill them.
“It was a red light and then it turned green. He could’ve just gone straight, but he went for the biker.”
