A decent human would have stopped to assist. Sheering off his leg and not stopping the femoral artery hemorrhage can cause death in minutes, but hey, he mildly inconvenienced you so he deserved it.
As far as the bikers stopping the Rover and what I would do:
I would do my best to not get myself into a situation like that, (and I am not saying the driver egged it on) however, IF confronted with a situation like that, I would run like the driver did. If I felt my life was in danger, I would have no qualms "moving" the people boxing me in. During the chase, the driver wasn't driving defensively enough, and allowed the bikers to pass him. If this wasn't enough, he got off the highway and drove himself into a choke point. I drive a slightly lifted 2500 4x4, and would be damned if I would allow my vehicle to stop moving. Years ago, my grandpa was being followed home after he closed his restaurant by someone trying to rob him. Instead of driving home and opening himself up to a robbery there, he simply drove to the police station and laid on the horn. The driver should have stayed on the highway doing his best not to put other motorists in danger, and alerted the police about his direction of travel and the threat at hand.
It is easy to armchair quarterback something like this and say "I would have done this or that" but the panic of a driver who is untrained in driving out of situations like this has to be considered. I can see how he thought that a more populated area like downtown may have been safer.
