MODESTO, Calif. (AP) - An Uber and Lyft driver who was beaten by up to 15 motorcycle riders on a San Francisco freeway has undergone surgery for a broken leg.

The Modesto Bee (https://bit.ly/2ngHLHj ) says Alex Quintana was in fair condition Friday. Pins were placed in his left leg, which was run over during Wednesday’s attack on Interstate 101.

The 32-year-old Modesto man says he was heading to pick up a passenger when he tried to inch around the dirt bikers, who were blocking traffic.

Quintana says they smashed his mirrors and a window. When he got out to confront them, Quintana says he was beaten and kicked.

Video captured part of the attack.

No arrests have been made.

Quintana, who supports a 3-month-old son, says he’ll be hospitalized at least 10 more days.
