Raging driver throws milkshake, grabs rider, runs her over, flees scene
Be careful out their folks...
Reyes was one of four cyclists tooling down 14th Street in Oakland about 1 a.m. April 29 when a truck whizzed by - too close - and then cut them off. The cyclists rode around the truck as it was stopped at an intersection. When the light changed and the truck passed the cyclists again, a milk shake came flying out of one of the vehicle's windows, slopping onto one of the riders.
Near the next intersection - where 14th meets Broadway, by Oakland City Hall - the truck driver stepped out to confront the lead cyclist, Josh Harrington, 31, of Oakland. Harrington swerved around the motorist, then reached back with a U-lock and smashed the driver's-side window.
What happened next was unimaginable. The motorist climbed back into his truck, reached out and grabbed the next passing cyclist. It was Reyes.
Gripping her collar, the truck driver hit the accelerator, dragging Reyes alongside the truck for about 70 feet.... As she tumbled, the back tires ran her over.
btw if you want to help out the injured cyclist, sounds like she could use it http://www.gofundme.com/2t3p3w
