Was out on our normal Thursday morning training ride - nothing formal just a group of 50-120 who do a regular run at 5.45am. About 15 mins into it there is a huge crash and the sound of squealing tyres and bikes plus riders going flying. Pull up and look back to see this car has taken out the outside left rear of the pack and put five people on the ground.
The guy stopped (I guess he had to since one of his front tyres flatted) and the riders removed his car keys whilst police and ambulance were called. Anyway they turned up pretty quickly to take away the injured and the offender off to be charged.
We continued on rather shaken.
It scared the c**p out of me because it was good viz, everyone had lights, there was virtually no traffic and it was a straight highway with 4 lanes each way.
Reading the article linked below a bit later in the day it seems that the driver was on drugs. We were really lucky nobody was killed and only a few were hit. It could have been much worse.
Unfortunately he is not likely to get a custodial sentence out of it but I think he should.
