NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City man who intervened in the beating of a driver pulled from his car and set upon by a group of bikers says he “felt intense danger” as he told them to stop.

Sergio Consuegra says he wishes he could have done more.

He had been on his way to church on Sept. 29 when he saw the SUV stop and a bunch of motorcyclists approach.

The driver was on the ground when Consuegra stepped in between him and the bikers.

Police have said the bikers stopped the SUV on a highway, attacked the vehicle and then pulled the driver from his car on after he plowed over a Massachusetts motorcyclist while trying to escape the initial confrontation.
