The driver then put his vehicle in reverse and struck Bowker. After striking Bowker the first time, the driver of the Mercedes then put his vehicle into drive and struck Bowker again head-on, as Bowker was trying to get up and get out of the roadway.
This time Bowker was thrown onto the hood and windshield of the Mercedes and dragged for more than a block and a half. All the while Bowker and the female passenger in the Mercedes were yelling at the driver, "Stop! Your going to kill him!" Bowker said that while he was hanging onto the car the driver was smiling, seeming to enjoy horror he was inflicting on Bowker.
Bowker was lucky and escaped the assault with relatively minor injuries in the form of cuts and bruises on his feet and legs.
