Road Rage Victim Punched Into Path Of Car
Cambridgeshire Police are appealing for information after a cyclist was assaulted following a road-rage incident.
The victim, a man in his 50s, was cycling along the A1123 at Needingworth on Friday (March 20) at about 3.50pm when he got into an incident of road rage with the driver of a grey/beige Audi A6.
The cyclist was approaching a roundabout and signalling to move across to the right hand lane when the offender approached at speed and swerved in front of him.
Both men then got into a verbal altercation before continuing along the road and turning right at the roundabout.
The driver pulled over at the side of the road, got out of his car and waited for the cyclist to pass and when doing so, punched the victim, who was wearing a cycle helmet, to his head, causing him to come off his bike and collide with an oncoming car, suffering minor injuries.
The offender, who is described as a white male in his 40s, between 5'11" and six foot, with short grey hair, wearing a maroon zip-up sweatshirt and blue jeans, then drove away.
PC Adam Whelan said:
"This was a nasty incident of road rage, thankfully no one was seriously injured although this could have been a different matter. I would appeal to anyone who saw this happen, or who saw either the Audi or cyclist in the moments leading up to the incident to contact police."
Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111 (anonymously).
