  • 02/06/2016

A shocking piece of road rage has been caught on camera north of Tampa, Florida.

You can hear the screams from onlookers as the driver of a silver car goes up on three wheels, knocking a couple off a bike and completely running it over.

Joe Calderazzo, a navy veteran, can be seen falling to the ground.  

"I thought the guy was trying to kill us," he told CBS.

 "You don't know what's going through your mind. Is he going to put the car in reverse? Is he going to turn around? Is he going to stop and pull out a gun? You don't know what's going on."

The man who shot the video says he witnessed a heated exchange between the bikers and driver, and started recording when he felt the situation escalating.

The driver -- 31-year-old Robert Paul Vance -- was arrested a short time later and has been charged with hit-and-run, a moving traffic violation and aggravated battery. 

According to Florida State Corrections, he is a habitual traffic offender.

As for the couple, they are expected to be okay. The two bikers were being treated in a Florida hospital last night for non-life-threatening injuries.
