Motorists Killed by Cyclists

Whether accidental or intentional, usually it’s motorists who kill cyclists. There’s no way we could list all the times that happens.

This is not an exhaustive list, just the cases we’ve heard about.

A truck driver got behind two cyclists and started beeping his horn. The cyclists flipped him off. The driver parked his truck and got out of it, and one of the cyclists hit him, knocking him to the ground. The driver had a pre-existing neck injury, and in the fall to the ground he broke his neck and became paralyzed. He was hopsitalized and died the following May.
