A 20-year-old man was arrested after ramming his vehicle into a motorcycle and causing both to crash into a 1992 Saturn while traveling eastbound on 103rd Street near Ricker Road. He was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest.

The man was driving a 1990 Isuzu at 7:10 p.m. Sunday when he started pushing a Harley-Davidson driven by a 48-year-old male. Police said he pushed the motorcycle for 100 feet until it hit the Saturn, and then crashed his car into the vehicle as well.

The motorcyclist was not injured. A passenger in the Saturn was taken to Orange Park Medical Center, where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
