Driver Attacked by Motorcyclists Undergoes Surgery

Wednesday’s attack on Interstate 101, when up to 15 dirt motorcycle riders attacked a driver, is still under investigation.

The driver, Alex Quintana, has undergone surgery for a broken leg. The Modesto Bee says he was in fair condition Friday and pins were placed in his left leg. His leg was run over during the attack.

The 32-year-old Modesto man says he was heading to pick up a passenger when he tried to inch around the dirt bikers, who were blocking traffic with their stunts.

Quintana says they smashed his mirrors and a window. When he got out to confront them, Quintana says he was beaten and kicked.

Quintana, who supports a 3-month-old son, says he’ll be hospitalized at least 10 more days.
