CBS Boston reported that one of the bikers was hit, but is said to be OK.
Several other drivers on the highway were forced to stop as the bunch carelessly cruised around.
‘I think they’re getting a little bold and they figure we can do this on our highways and that’s a major concern,’ Walsh said.
As many as 20 off-road vehicles were pulled from the road during the incident.
