Video of cyclist hit by taxi driver goes viral

cabcrashA video emerged showing a cab driver in a silver taxi swerving and hitting a cyclist last week on Bay St., near Bloor St.

The cyclist was a bike courier for a food company.

“You’re going to jail! That is assault,” the cyclist is heard saying to a man standing beside the cab in the video.

There was no word on possible charges as police continue probing the mishap.

Video of the incident shows some lapse in time, he added.

“So what happened during that time? Was there blows, did somebody say anything? These are all the things we need to hear,” Stibbe said.

Police reported a 57-year-old taxi driver was going north in a 2011 Toyota Camry when he hit a 31-year-old man on a bicycle. The cyclist suffered minor injuries.

Police want to speak with four men — including three cyclists who stopped for the collision — whom they believed witnessed the incident.

The city’s licensing and standards department is also investigating.

Road rage and tension between cyclists and drivers is something that is to be sadly expected in the summer months when the number of cyclists increase and the risk of collisions rise. – CINEWS
