The cyclist was intentionally hit by the woman behind the wheel, after he made a remark to her. Courier Damien Doughty, (38 years old), crashed into a tree after Justine Henshaw-Bryan, (25 years old) bumped into him behind the man. She did it in revenge for Damien telling her not to use the cellphone while driving.
Damien stayed in the intensive care unit. He got hid liver damaged and ribs broken. The accident occurred in February last year in Stoke Newington.
Henshaw-Bryan said that it was her boyfriend Aaron Hall. That he grabbed the wheel and knocked down Mr. Doughty. But Hall denied everything. Today, the woman was sentenced to 5 years in prison.
Mister Doughty said: "I hope this will be a lesson for all careless drivers. I see such behavior at the wheel every day. Drivers do not understand how dangerous their driving can be to other people. When you are on a bicycle, then nothing will protect you. A lot of good people, turn into real maniacs when they get into the car."
