“It came over and clipped me just over the center line, spun me out. I went over the handlebars and slid about 200 feet down the road.” said Pierson.
Luckily he was wearing a helmet and protective clothing, so he only suffered minor injuries. Witnesses say the car is a 2000’s model gold Chevy Impala, and when John’s son posted about the crash other bikers began commenting.
“This has been an ongoing thing with this car, throughout the bike community, we have all talked about it, shared it. He destroyed my bike, he has run several other bikes off the road, and he does it in spots where he can take off.” Pierson explained.
“I have heard from my Facebook, there has been over twelve bikes ran off the road, clipped, anything with this exact same description of the car,” said Stephen Pierson, John’s son. “It needs to come to a stop. They are fathers, they are grandpas, it is attempted murder.”
But Springfield police and the Greene County Sheriff’s Office say they have not had any reports called in.
“We all should be filing police reports. But in my experience it has never done any good.” Pierson explained. “Stuff like this happens to bikers all of the time and nobody really cares.”
John is hoping that somebody will know where to find the person responsible for these crashes.
“Hopefully they can get a tag number and Springfield PD will get involved and do something. Without a tag number and a good description, it is pretty much… we are at a stalemate.” John explained.
Before it is too late…
“I was thinking about getting a bike and start riding soon. But I don’t want to until this gets done.” Stephen said.
“If he doesn’t get caught, somebody is going to end up dying.” John said.
If you are a motorcyclist that has had a run-in with that gold Chevy Impala, Springfield police ask that you file a police report about what happened so they can get details and hopefully find who is doing this.
