Just a few friends out for a Sunday ride. Watch out for Priuses.

Look, but don't touch. And don't touch with your car -- especially if they're bikers.

Two motorcycle riders were injured Sunday morning when a Toyota Prius "veered into" them on Highway 101 near Belmont, according to reports. The driver of the fuel-efficient car was attempting to film the motorcyclists on his cell phone, for reasons still unclear.

The driver "swerved into the center divider while recording and then hit one rider," at 8:08 a.m. on Sunday, according to the San Mateo County Times. "The car then bounced back across two lanes and hit another."

Following the crash, the bikers "hit the Prius driver in the head and threatened him with a knife," according to police. Two bikers and the driver were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

No one was arrested, though the driver was cited for "distracted driving," according to reports.

Some bikers present were Hells Angels. They were not crashed into, police said.
