In an interview with PIX11 Morning News, the wife and attorney of injured biker Edwin Mieses said he was an “innocent victim” and was trying to diffuse the out of control situation.
Dayana said that Edwin has not said much since the accident as he is in a lot of pain and heavily medicated. Edwin has undergone two surgeries for his spine, one of which indicates that he will most likely never walk again, Dayana said. She said she has not told their nine-year-old daughter what has happened and that their 15-year-old son has began acting out because of the situation. “He’s taking it the hardest,” Dayana said of their son.
Attorney Gloria Allred said that Edwin was off his bike and trying to help the situation when he was run over. “What was Edwin doing at the time he was crushed under that SUV?” Allred said. “He was off his motorcycle, standing in front of it with his back to the SUV, trying to get everybody to move on, roll off.” Allred said no one attacking Lien’s vehicle when he “gunned the motor” and ran over Edwin.
Edwin has not been interviewed by police yet due to his condition.
Dayana and Allred said they are leaving it up to the District Attorney to seek charges against Lien but say they want justice. “We do want justice for him because he is an innocent victim,” Allred said.
