BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (TheBlaze/AP) — Beverly Hills police are seeking the driver of a white BMW who rammed a man on a bicycle who had punched him during an apparent road-rage exchange.
Lt. Lincoln Hoshino says surveillance video shows the luxury vehicle’s driver intentionally running into the bicyclist, pinning him to a metal trash bin.
Watch the footage in this CBS Local report, which includes witness accounts:
Investigators believe the April 3 incident started with a road-rage confrontation during evening rush hour, when the bicyclist punched the driver in the face.
“The driver intentionally rammed the bicyclist with his vehicle, pinning him to a metal rolling trash bin,” the Beverly Hills Police Department said in a statement.
The bike rider’s injuries were not life-threatening. His name has not been released. But the Los Angeles Times reported the bicyclist admitting to police that the incident was spurred on by the fight that occurred between him and the driver earlier.
The BMW driver is being sought on suspicion of attempted murder.
