A British woman is apparently bragging on Twitter about her run-in with a cyclist earlier this week. Personal Injury Attorney

Accordingly, the woman “tweeted” that she hit a cyclist while in her vehicle and then drove away without so much as getting out of her car to check on the poor pedestrian. Specifically, she states that she “definitely knocked a cyclist off his bike earlier – I have right of way, he doesn’t even pay road tax! #bloodycyclists”

The cops were not entirely thrilled to read the post. The “tweet” was getting so much traffic that the police decided to reach out to the woman and “respectfully request” that she turn herself in for the crime that she committed earlier that day.

The local news stations hyped the story up, and the police strongly urged her to turn herself in. She has still not done so.

The victim/cyclist was also found and contacted. The 29-year-old male stated that the car came “tearing around the blind corner, just missing a fellow cyclist in front of her.” He further added that the “wing mirror” of his bicycle was torn off, and he went flying into a nearby hedge. Luckily, the hedge broke his fall, and his injuries were minor.

The defendant’s employer was also contacted about the incident, and promptly notified the public by releasing a statement as follows: “We are taking the incidents very seriously, and a full and detailed investigation will be carried out and appropriate action taken. We have already spoken to Norfolk Police.”

The defendant worked for a local accounting firm but has since stayed quit about the incident at bar.

Pedestrians are often times harmed within a half a mile range from their homes. It is important for both drivers and cyclists to “share the road,” meaning that they most also share the responsibility of watching for the safety of others.
