Many of you may have witnessed this (I didn’t because I left the Mass early): a cyclist was intentionally struck by a car yesterday during Critical Mass on Fifth Avenue. From what I was told by the victim (another friend of mine), the driver flipped out and was weaving into the bus lane and back into the crowd of cyclists, and eventually knocked my friend off her bike. At this point everyone surrounded his car, the police came and apparently berated the cyclists and didn’t ticket the man.
Hopefully someone else can fill in or correct the details on this. Weird, I had a really bad feeling about yesterday’s Mass. My friend is ok but very sore and shaken from the whole situation.
