Road Rage


SARASOTA — A motorcycle rider involved in a collision with a car that appeared to swerve into its path Sunday has a history of unsafe driving, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office and court documents.

The rider, Darin Hendrickson, 33, of Sarasota, suffered broken ribs and road rash when a silver Mazda 3 hatchback lurched into his lane and caused him to crash.

The incident was captured on cell phone video by a family that witnessed the crash a few car lengths behind them.

“I was pelted with a bunch of metal,” said Hendrickson who was riding a 2008 GSXR 1000 Suzuki sports bike. “Before the video started he threw a quarter or change and hit me and my motorcycle and put some damage to the motorcycle. You see me following him to a stopping point to get his information or get him to pull over.”

Hendrickson can be seen in the video gesturing with his arms from the right lane to the car in the left lane. He said the driver did not roll down the windows or acknowledge him.

Hendrickson swung his arms near a passenger window, before the car veered into the right line side swiping the motorcycle causing it to crash.

“I was being dragged by the car,” said Hendrickson who came to rest a few feet from a utility pole. He was wearing a helmet.

As the car drove away, Hendrickson got to his feet and approached a Hispanic family in the car behind him that had begun recording the confrontation beginning on Beneva Road at Bahia Vista. It ended with Hendrickson pleading with the driver to go after the car.

“Follow him, follow him, please, please,” said Hendrickson asked the family who had a child in the backseat.

Hendrickson, who has a 1-year-old son, said he understood why the driver did not give chase.

“I was in absolute shock,” Hendrickson said. “My son started flashing through my face. I thought I can’t die right now.”

The Sheriff’s Office said in a news release asking the public to help locate the Mazda driver that they are conducting an aggravated-battery investigation.
If the driver is located they could face a felony charge.

Hendrickson has an extensive history of traffic violations that include speeding, careless driving, leaving the scene of an accident without giving information, operating a motorcycle between lanes, failure to stop at a red light, following too closely, and other violations dating back over 10 years.

His criminal charges involved theft in 2008 and 2011 and he was charged with burglary with assault in 2003. His recent brushes with law enforcement were for traffic-related incidents.

Hendrickson said his motorcycle was his only mode of transportation.

“I want justice served,” Hendrickson said. “I lost my ability to have transportation. I can’t take care of my responsibilities”

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident. They are asking for the public’s help to identify the vehicle involved in the “aggravated battery incident.” Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 941-861-4317.

Did you see the rider strike the window on the car before the driver decided he'd had enough and took the rider out?

He didn't die. He jumped up and tried to get the car that was recording the video to follow the Mazda.

If you're really serious about finding out all that happened, google Darin Hendrickson and read other accounts.

Bill,

If I have my family in the car and some guy on a bike is attacking my car, he'd be lucky if he didnt eat lead.

You can't just go around beating on peoples car. And if you do, expect them to make you stop.

He was outta line for punching the car for sure BUT you can't use deadly force unless you are in fear of your life. A dude on a bike is not threatening your life. At least not at that moment.

Gee I wonder why he doesnt have a front cowl, maybe the gixxa 1000 power wheelies were too much for him.

So much fail.

1. Grab some throttle and go. Four wheels will always win vs two in a demolition derby. Nothing good comes out of confronting cagers. Not to mention the gun toting cagers. The with that. Self preservation wins.

2. The driver used his car as a weapon in my opinion.

“Officers say the driver faces felony charge for aggravated battery.”

Ouch

But why did he attack the car? There had to be a reason. And for some reason chris knowing you wouldn't have used your car as a weapon. Would you?

And remember he just punched the window if he pulled a piece then I would have took him out with the car.

Bumping him is not deadly force.
