According to what the police say the motorist told them in Portland, he deliberately hit the first cyclist because he was apparently frustrated that cyclists (in general) don't share the road. The police spokesman implied that the motorist's interpretation of "share the road" was for cyclists to never be in his way when he is driving. The second cyclist was hit because he was in the pathway of the motorist when he tried to flee after hitting the first cyclist.
"Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."
