Driver ploughs into Critical Mass ride in Brazil

From the Guardian:

A protest march will be held in Porto Alegre in Brazil this evening after a driver ran down dozens of cyclists at a Critical Mass ride on Friday.

The incident was caught clearly on several cameras and the footage makes for disturbing viewing.

One witness wrote on the local Critical Mass blog: “I saw legs in the air, helmets, bicycles, arms, all mixed together with parts of the car all flying and making noise. It was like a horror movie.”

Incredibly, although 16 people were badly injured, nobody was killed.

The driver, Ricardo Neis, 47, handed himself in to police on Monday. His abandoned and badly damaged car had been found on Saturday morning.
