"There's no protection. If someone hits you in a car, your door gets dented. They hit you with this thing, you probably lose a leg," he said.

Christopher Maglione, a witness who works in the Titus Landing area, told Fox 35 that the motorcycle was "going the wrong way" on a nearby road.

"I'm incredibly shocked. I've never heard of anything like this happening in this plaza before," Maglione said.
