Car Hits At Least 40 Cyclists in Brazil - February 28, 2011, 09:23 PM

I'm sure some of you will appreciate this since I've seen some of your previous sentiments in bicycle threads. Warning - could be disturbing to some who actually do care about the safety of cyclists.


Car Runs Down 40 Bicyclists At Brazil Critical Mass Ride (GRAPHIC VIDEO)


Quote:
SAO PAULO (AP) — A motorist sped his car through a pack of more than 100 cycling activists in southern Brazil, sending bikes and screaming riders flying through the air and landing hard on the asphalt in a scene captured on amateur video and posted online.

At least 40 cyclists were injured, with most suffering cuts and broken bones, but nobody was killed, authorities said.

Police said the suspect, whose name they did not release, fled the scene of the incident Friday evening in Porto Alegre. He was brought in for questioning Monday after authorities found his abandoned car over the weekend.

The man claimed riders surrounded his vehicle and began beating on it, causing him to panic and fear for his life, police said.

But the lead investigator in the case called that version of events "fanciful," without giving other details.

Inspector Gilberto Montenegro told Globo TV network's G1 website that the man could face charges of attempted homicide. Under Brazilian law, prosecutors can decide whether to bring charges only after police close their investigation, which may take 30 days. The man is currently free.

people were hurt.

Cyclists in the Critical Mass ride told the Folha de S. Paulo newspaper that no riders were threatening the motorist.

"He drove behind us for two blocks, and people were trying to stay calm. Then in the third block he ... floored it on top of everyone," Marcelo Guidoux Kalil told Folha. "It was a scene of war, with twisted bicycles and people bleeding on the ground."

In the video, thuds and sharp sounds of metal on metal are heard as the car accelerates directly through the pack of cyclists.

Scores of riders and eyewitnesses screamed and asked bystanders to call police and ambulances as they began administering first aid to the victims.

Cycling is serious business...



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

critical mass asshats are just asking for road ragers to run them over. I am a cyclist and all these people do is piss people off in cars so much that it makes it dangerous for normal cyclist. Fuck um maybe they wont block cars anymore. Sorry cant feel bad for dick heads that try to force their ideals on everyone. So you like to ride bikes and want to save the earth from polution, thats great share the road and get the fuck out of the way. It just makes cagers treat everyone on a bike like shit.

This crap happens all the time when critical mass people get together. They are not supposed to be in the middle of the street obstructing traffic and they know the risks befor they attend these dumb events. There is a right and a wrong way to protest shit.

Its hard to feel sorry for idiots.

Some of the comments in this thread made me more sick to my stomach than the actual video.

As much as I hate city cyclists, I still wouldn't want this to happen to them. I mean, push them over when they split a crosswalk they were supposed to stop for. But this? no.
