A trip to the grocery store changed the lives of a Kellyville family.

The couple were returning home on their motorcycles Sunday, when a driver rammed into one of them and took off.

While the Schomer family was heading home on their sport bikes, John Schomer saw a driver in a Nissan Ultima or Maxima get too close to his wife so he tried to protect her but that's when he looked over and saw the man jerk the wheel to hit him.

"My concern was my wife," said Schomer.

No matter the danger, he wanted to keep her safe and but it was his wife who witnesses the accident.

"I saw the whole thing," said Brandi Schomer.

The Schomers say they saw a couple driving a newer black Nissan Ultima or Maxima come up behind them and got way to way too close.

"It looked like she was telling him to stop but then all of the sudden I saw him jerk his wheel over to the left and jerked it over in my lane and smacked me with the side of the car," said Schomer.

His wife says he was hit on purpose.

The scene still shows where Schomer was thrown 112 feet from the bike and landed near a metal pipe. His wife took him to the hospital and he has a sprained ankle and road rash all over his body.

"I went flying like that. The glimpses I could see of my bike just flipping through the air and rolling it was just beyond me," said Schomer.

He barely missed a tree stump and other hazards.

"A telephone pole and if I would have been any closer I would have been decapitated by a steel pipe," said Schomer.

They saw the couple's car swerve into the ditch but quickly gained control and took off.

"He didn't care, he didn't stop, he was gone," said Brandi Schomer.

The Schomer family hopes they won't be gone for good.

"I can't believe he actually deliberately slammed into me," said John Schomer.

The Schomers say many people who use the road that is known as Teal Road live in the area or use it to go to and from Sapulpa.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. The suspect car may have a damaged bumper and have red paint on the passenger side of the car.
