A motorcyclist from Southern California witnessed and chased down an erratic driver who
hit several cars in a matter of seconds and attempted to flee the
scene.

Capturing the footage on his GoPro camera, the rider, who goes by
the nickname, “Dick Danger,” said he was riding his
2003 GSXR-600 when he saw a black
Mercedes-Benz sedan side-swipe a vehicle that was traveling in
the opposite lane. The Mercedes driver then proceeded about 100
yards before rear-ending a pickup truck.

After coasting for a few more yards, the driver plowed into a
Toyota Prius. As a nearby fire marshal appeared to notify
authorities on his walkie-talkie, a man who claimed his car was
hit by the Mercedes paced angrily in the road, yelling at the
driver as onlookers squeezed by.

The Mercedes then backed up a few feet, with it’s entire
front-end completely crushed, and sped away.

The motorcyclist ran back to his bike and chased the driver for
miles, lane-splitting between cars on the highway, and
apparently talking to an emergency dispatcher on the
phone
.

I made the split-decision to pursue the hit-and-run driver
due to the fact that he appeared to be under the influence and
might hurt or kill someone,” Danger described on his YouTube
video. “Driver had tried to stop at different locations to hide
but cannot out-run me.”

The driver eventually pulls over and gets out of the car, at
one point, raising his hands as if to surrender.

“You should’ve stopped back there man, when you hit those
two cars bro,” the motorcyclist said. 

“I’m just saying I was wrong,” the driver replied.

After California Highway Patrol officers arrived on the scene,
the driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under
the influence, according to
KABC
