"You see me following him to a stopping point to get his information or get him to pull over". The auto then swerves into the motorcyclist, hitting the bike and forcing him off the road.

The motorcyclist is waving his hand at the Mazda and swerves into the lane of the auto. He said the driver did not roll down the windows or acknowledge him. "My arm was in the window and it was hooked".

The motorcyclists, who faced injuries following the incident, said that he hopes the driver will come forward.

This is the shocking moment a road rage dispute got violent as a motorist drove into a biker throwing him to the kerb. "I thought I cant die right now".

Hendrickson said he was traveling south on Beneva Road when the Mazda brake checked him.

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in identifying the driver of a auto that in a short 22-second clip can be seem veering sharply right and sideways toward, and crashing into, a motorcyclist, throwing the bike and rider.

If the driver is located they could face a felony charge.

"I want justice served", Hendrickson said.

A witness told WFLA-TV in Tampa that the driver threw spare change at the motorcyclist, Darin Hendrickson. They are asking for the public's help to identify the vehicle involved in the "aggravated battery incident".

Anyone with information related to the incident, vehicle or possible driver is asked to contact the Criminal Investigations Section at 941-861-4317.
