Goons on dirt bikes, ATVs, run over man in Kensington

A band of creeps on dirt bikes and ATVs chased and ultimately critically injured a 29-year-old man in Kensington earlier tonight, police said.
The victim, whose name was not released, was in his car on Hurley Street near Ontario about 7:30 p.m. when he encountered the young men, who were blocking the road.
When he yelled at them to move, the riders — who ranged in number from six to 15, according to witnesses — began chasing the motorist, said Lt. Darien Blackmon of East Detectives.
“They started throwing things at his car. He crashed into several parked cars, then took off running. That’s when they ran him over,” Blackmon said.
The fiends, who were riding an array of ATVs, dirt bikes and four-wheelers, fled on nearby Ontario Street.
Blackmon said the victim was admitted to Temple University Hospital in critical condition with head trauma, but was expected to survive.
Investigators are hoping area surveillance cameras might have filmed the bikers.
Tipsters can contact detectives at 215-686-3243.
