A driver intentionally hit a bike messenger downtown Wednesday. The cyclist was not seriously injured. From me, over at SeattleCrime:
The cyclist, a bicycle messenger, and the driver were on Spring near 5th Ave. on Wednesday when they had some kind of road dispute, the cyclist told police. The driver then passed the cyclist, stopped, opened his driver’s side door, and backed-up in attempt to hit the biker with the door. The biker moved to try to avoid getting hit by the door and was struck by the right rear bumper of the vehicle and knocked to the ground.
