Shocking footage shows cyclist 'deliberately' knocked over by car

Shocking footage shows a cyclist being knocked off his bike by a car which appears to swerve deliberately.

Dashcam video captured the moment the two appear to be talking as they travel side by side.

Then the car sharply turns left and pushes the cyclist, wearing a high vis jacket, who is sent tumbling into the road.

It happened on Wandsworth Street last Friday, MailOnline reported.

They said the rider suffered bleeding knuckles and injured ribs after the crash.



The Department for Transport explained how vulnerable cyclists are when compared to other road users, saying: ‘These groups are not protected
by a vehicle body in the same way car users are, and tend to be harder for drivers to see on the road. They are, therefore, particularly susceptible to injuries.’
