Kevin, a taxi driver, said that before he could get out of his car to offer help, there were already four or five people pulling the BMW driver out of his car. The drunk driver however started scolding those that came to his rescue which led to them giving him a good beating. The motorcyclist ie believed to be among those that assaulted him.

Kevin said: “They punched and kicked him. One person was even hitting him with a wooden rod. The situation turned quite chaotic.”
