I actually am surprised that this doesn't happen more

Angry Man Runs Over Biker, Police Say
Cyclist Unharmed; $5,000 Bicycle Destroyed In Crash

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- An Albuquerque cyclist said he was obeying all traffic laws when an angry man plowed him over with a truck.

Steve McCampbell said he walked away with only a few bruises after the incident that destroyed his $5,000 bicycle.

Police said McCampbell and a group of others were cycling near Constitution Avenue and San Mateo Boulevard last month when an angry Joe Ackley started screaming at them.

“He pulled up behind us and that was when I was like, 'What's your problem?'” McCampbell said.

The cyclist said Ackley pulled up next to the pack and tried to run over him.

I think Ol' Joe Ackley should be charged with attempted murder.
