Well let's see!!!! A dirt bike on the city streets that hits a car that was probably registered that made an illegal UTurn. I saw that same dirt bike earlier flyng up Connecticut Ave with no helmut or eye wear. The band aid on his face may have been sufficient I guess. Hopefully he will live through this and learn his lesson......if not hopefully someone will learn from his mistake......RIDING A DIRT BIKE ON THE CITY STREETS. Angry crowd???....sounds like an ignorant crowd to me. Half the crowd probably came out the liquor store.

"Yelling for the driver of the car's head" "She aint hurt, she aint hurt, give her to us" This shows exactly what type of savages are out there on Stratford Ave. SAVAGES!! Is it me or are these people disgusting??
The u-turn had nothing to do with the accident..

Hope no one was seriously hurt. Has dirt bike rider learned his lesson? As far as the crowd goes, they were just kidding. No one is that silly.

Don't be so sure, it's a crowd, and crowd mentality does tend to be a lot more brave than one on one. I'm sure they'd have happy beat the van driver to a pulp, you know, to teach them a lesson and all.

They were probably all liquored up on MD 20/20 and full of gubment cheese.

There is a lesson here and I hope all those who ride dirt bikes and ATV's on the city streets learn from this rider.

Look at the bright side they can't blame the cops on this one. This poor woman was scared to death at this mob and it was not her fault.

What a suprise, a crowd of people with nothing better to do in Bridgeport. I am totally shocked. I wonder if the dirt bike was registered and legal to drive on city streets. It is unfortunate that the driver of the station wagon made a u turn on a city street. U turns in Bridgeport are almost as common as people stopping their cars in the middle of the street to talk to friends on the sidewalk while diregarding other drivers tryng to get home or to work.

My blood started to boil just thinking about those a-holes that stop in the middle of the road to talk to friends. One of the many things I will NOT miss from living on the east side.

Sadly, one first needs the ability to learn, before one can learn a lesson. For sure the crowd of ignorants cannot blame the cops, but I do not see it mentioned, what race was the driver of the car? Find it hard to believe that there would be this reaction if the driver of the car was a "sister" driving an unregistered, uninsured vehicle.

Plain and simple solution to "dirtbikes". They are not allowed to be on city streets. Also, police are not allowed to chase the illegal drivers because of potential injury that may be caused by the chase. The City wants to avoid the liability.

Dirt bikes are illegal on city streets - Period! The driver of that bike had no business on Hollister St or any other STREET.

My question is - how do these kids even get those bikes? Most of the drivers I've seen on these off-road vehicles are ridding through the heart of the ghetto, most often the damn projects. And that "crowd" (of people) who witnessed the accident had the audacity to be angry with the female driver of the car? OMG... Ignorance at its max! A bunch of low-life drugged and liquored up bums!
