Days after a dramatic motorcycle crash was caught on camera, the driver who veered into the motorcyclist has been charged with aggravated assault.

Eric Sanders, the driver of the motorcycle, contends the car's driver swerved intentionally. He suffered abrasions in the collision that left his girlfriend in a Fort Worth hospital with a broken wrist and deep arm lacerations.

Sanders said the crash happened Saturday afternoon on a two-lane county road about 5 miles north of Granbury, Texas. A video shows the motorcycle passing a car, which then veers left over a double yellow center line, upsetting the motorcycle and sending the riders into the roadway.

The car driver, 68-year-old William Crum has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He says he is sorry, but claims the erratic driving was the result of an insect bite.
