GRANBURY, Texas – A motorcycle crash that left two injured was caught on video by another motorcyclist’s helmet camera.

Editor’s note: The video contains profanity. Viewer discretion advised. 

On Saturday , Eric Sanders and his friend were riding their motorcycles down a Texas road when a car suddenly swerved and clipped his motorcycle, throwing Sanders and his girlfriend off the bike.

“I’ve got a gouge in my elbow that is bone-deep,” Sanders told WFAA.

Video posted to Facebook shows Sanders’ friend confront the driver of the car.

“What were you doing? You hit them,” you can hear the friend say.

“I don’t care,” the driver of the car says.

The man in the video repeatedly says he doesn’t care because he “got stung by a wasp.”

Sanders is recovering from his minor injuries, but his girlfriend remains in the hospital.

According to WFAA, so far, no one has been ticketed for the wreck, or for the pass in double-yellow lines.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says they are investigating whether the man intentionally crashed into Sanders.

    Sure seems like he did it on purpose and should be charged with attempted murder among other things. Why do people have issue with being passed ? Stop taking it personal people if someone wants to drive/ride fast it’s not your business

      Correct, the bike was passing in a no pass zone but it doesn’t give this a hole the right to do what he did . The next guy that doesn’t get his slow arse over, out of the fast lane on expressway is it ok for me to run them off the road ? Believe me it has crossed my mind several thousands times,They are breaking the law, passing lane is for passing.

    All these numbskulls should be charged. The guy with the camera was FLYING!! Had to be going way over the limit.

    Second cocky cyclist passing on double lane.

    Idiot driver taking matters into his own hands. Can’t blame him for being pissed at asshole cyclists, but wrong none the less.

    This man’s a hero, I don’t know who these guys think they are, they literally don’t think the rules apply to them, they fly around cars doing 120 mph all the time, revving their engines to the point the driver’s heart rate goes up in fear the motorcyclist is going to hit him and he’s going to accidentally kill the motorcyclist. I was at a light a few months back and this jerk is coming at me as I look on in horror in my rearview mirror only to illegally pass me AT THE RED LIGHT running the light at the intersection; I thought I was dead. I could’ve killed him, so I know all too well what this man experienced, if you can’t handle the effects of breaking the traffic, put in place to save people’s lives, then DON’T BREAK THE LAW! THIS SHOULD STAND AS A WARNING TO ALL YOU LOSERS WHO THINK YOU’RE ABOVE THE LAW! You’re not the “Hell’s Angels,” so stop acting like it… Unbelievable. I’ll bet this man’s passenger was scared to death. Knock it off and I swear, drivers will respect you if you respect them. The problem is NOT the drivers, it’s the bikers, they have NO RESPECT for the law or the drivers. What do you expect?
