A man driving a Kia van had his eye socket fractured in a wild caught-on-video gang beatdown after he collided with a Lexus on a Bronx street, police said Wednesday. After leaving the 53-year-old victim bleeding on the street, the assailants drove off in his Kia, cops said. The mayhem began when the driver of the Lexus SUV, heading north on Exterior St., recklessly tried to speed between the Kia, which was headed in the same direction, and a parked Honda near E. 150th St. at about 6:40 p.m. on March 30, surveillance video released by the NYPD shows. There wasn’t enough room for the Lexus to slip between the two vehicles, causing a collision, the video shows. The Lexus driver, along with the Honda’s owner and four of his friends, angrily surrounded the Kia. As one of the men stood on the roof of the Kia, the victim got out and was pummeled by another of the men. The man standing on the roof also bent down to get a punch in. The assailants chased the victim as he tried to run off while one of the attackers got behind the wheel of the Kia.
