Shocking Road Rage Incident Between 4WD Driver And Cyclist
A shocking video has been released showing a 4WD driver lashing out at a cyclist in a road rage incident in Sydney's Inner West.
It's alleged that the driver of a Toyota HiLux and a cyclist almost collided on Grosvenor Street in Summer Hill on Wednesday morning.
In the video, the 23-year-old cyclist, who ended up on the ground after the incident, is threatened repeatedly by the 45-year-old man.
The driver is heard yelling at the cyclist:
'I'm Lebanese mate, I'm going to f*** you,'
'I'm going to f*** your life, you son of a b****. I'm going to follow you, I am going to f*** your life,'
The video, obtained by the Today show, also shows the cyclist's crumpled bike on the ground before the driver returns to his 4WD.
The driver appeared on the Today show this morning claiming the cyclist provoked him and that it was not his fault his vehicle had knocked the man from his bike.
'He was sticking his finger up, carrying on, I didn't hit him,'
'Then he got in front of me and started driving slowly, sticking his finger up and then he took off, braked, and I was rolling in traffic and I hit his back tyre.'
'I mean, it's not right, like I said, I don’t provoke it. I'm not a violent person.'
