Beverly Hills BMW driver sought for ramming bikeApril 24, 2013 @ 5:16 pm
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (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.
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.
Police say the driver threatened to kill the cyclist, drove after him into an alley and rammed him.
The bike rider's injuries were not life-threatening. His name has not been released.
The BMW driver is being sought on suspicion of attempted murder.
