PHOENIX - It was just supposed to be a ride to a friend's house but a Phoenix man says for some reason he was targeted by someone on the road.
"I watched a car come around the corner and after he came around the corner he slowed down," said Scott Walters.
He said he didn't think much about an oncoming car because the two were on opposite sides of the road.
That is until Scott says the driver of a Silver Kia started heading right for him.
"He steered right towards me and stepped on the gas and kept going," Scott said. "By the time I figured out he was actually going for me I couldn't really get out the way so all I could was lean over his hood and lessen the impact."
Scott tells ABC15 his bike bounced off the car and went flying.
"I went over his hood," Scott said. "He away from the curb so I got dumped off the side."
Afterward the silver Kia took off.
Limping, but not seriously injured, Scott recalls how he got up and actually found a piece of evidence.
"I had his rear view mirror sitting right there," he said.
Phoenix police say there's probably no way they'll ever find the driver because there are no witnesses, no license plate number and the mirror is all they have to go on.
Scott just hopes it's not one of his neighbors.
He says there was no doubt the person who hit him near 29th Place and Oak Street had cruel intentions.
"This is something that should never happen again."
