Lawrence motorcyclist hurt in NYC skirmish

A group of motorcyclists surrounded a Range Rover on a New York highway over the weekend, and when one motorcyclist appeared to purposely stop directly in front of the sport utility vehicle, it sparked a wild confrontation and chase that left a Lawrence man injured and two motorcyclists in police custody, according to police and footage of the incident.

Edwin “Jay” Mieses Jr., 32, who was riding one of dozens of motorcycles on the Henry Hudson Parkway Sunday afternoon, sustained two broken legs after apparently being run over by the SUV, police said. He remained in critical condition Tuesday at St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City.
