Some shocking footage from a CCTV camera has been released showing a bus purposefully driving into a cyclist.
It’s said that the driver and the cyclist had had a disgreement shortly before the incident, which led to the bus driver using his bus ‘like a weapon’.
The driver’s personal lawyer said the collison was very much out of character and that it was done in a ‘moment of madness’.
The cyclist suffered a broken leg, and his bicycle was crushed.
Cycling associations say that these kinds of incidents are on the rise, with more people seeking compensation claims after accidents and collisions on the road. There needs to be more respect from drivers, they say.
