Video shows a Road Rage bus driver using his bus as a weapon to knock over a cyclist he had an altercation with.
Around 8.30am on April 5 last year, Gavin Hill got into an argument with keen cyclist Phillip Mead after cutting in front of him onto St James Barton roundabout in Bristol.
When the bus stopped Mr Mead parked his bike against the front of the bus, and tugged at one of its windscreen wipers, he then got back on his bike and cycled off chased by Mr Frome who then deliberately swerved his bus to knock him off his bicycle.
Driver Gavin Hill, 29, of Frome, had previously pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and causing grievous bodily harm. Sentencing Hill to 17 months in jail, Judge Mark Horton said his action was not an accident, it was an assault, deliberate dangerous driving.
The following video shows what can happen when a perfectly normal driver loses all control. Mr Hill’s normal passive character completely evaporated when he entered a heightened state of anger commonly referred to as the red mist effect.
