hit cyclist

Police just released a disturbing video of a driver in Canada ramming a cyclist

Vernon RCMP is asking the public for help identifying the occupants of a white Jeep Cherokee that hit a cyclist with their car before getting out of the vehicle and assaulting him.

Police say that the cyclist had a verbal altercation with the occupants of the Jeep moments before they struck him.

The disturbing video released by RCMP shows the Jeep knocking the cyclist off of his bike and to the ground. The bike is then dragged along the ground for several metres before the car turns around.

After the video, police say that two men exited the Cherokee and assaulted the cyclist.

The incident took place on March 24, but investigators are now releasing surveillance footage months later in the hopes that the public will be able to identify the man.

"Police have continued to investigate the incident over the past several months and we have determined there were three occupants in the vehicle," said Cpl. Tania Finn, media relations officer with the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP, in a statement released on Monday.
