Edwin Mieses, his wife, Dayana, and their attorney, Gloria Allred, speak to Savannah Guthrie on TODAY Wednesday.
NEW YORK (AP) - A motorcycle rider paralyzed when he was hit by an SUV driver in a roadway melee says he doesn't blame the driver for his injuries.
Edwin Mieses says he cannot judge what may have been going through SUV driver Alexian Lien's mind.
The Lawrence, Mass., biker was interviewed Wednesday on NBC's "Today." He appeared with his attorney, Gloria Allred, and his wife.
Mieses vows he'll walk again.
The Sept. 29 encounter began when the SUV and a motorcycle bumped on a Manhattan highway. Investigators say Lien hit the gas as other bikers converged and ran over Mieses.
Authorities say the bikers chased Lien, dragged him from his car and beat him.
An undercover police detective was accused of participating. One rider posted online video from a helmet-mounted camera.
Lien isn't charged.
