Another motorcyclist has been charged in connection with the Sept. 29 beating of an SUV driver on the Henry Hudson Parkway.

Kaliq Douglas, 28, of Brooklyn, was charged Friday with gang assault and assault with intent to cause serious injury for his alleged role in the attack, police said.

The victim, Alexian Lien, 33, was driving a Range Rover on the parkway in Washington Heights and trying to escape bikers who had surrounded his vehicle after it apparently struck one of the motorcycles, police said.

Lien sped away and was eventually stopped by some of the bikers on 178th Street, where he was pulled out and assaulted, according to police. A biker run over by Lien's SUV was also seriously injured.

At least seven motorcyclists have been arrested in connection with the case on charges ranging from reckless driving to assault.
