Guevara, 39, said she was on a highway heading back to Mexico City on Sunday when she overtook a sport utility vehicle, which then struck her bike.

Guevara, who had a passenger on her motorcycle, said she had a shouting match with the driver when four men got out of the SUV and attacked her.

“I fell to the ground and the four began to kick me. One of the first blows is the one in my face. I went into a fetal position to try to protect myself,” she said.
