    World News - UK bus driver gets 17 months in jail for mowing down bicyclist

    By msnbc.com staff
    LONDON – A bus driver who authorities say deliberately mowed down a bicyclist in a road rage incident has been sentenced to 17 months in jail.
    Gavin Hill, 29, of Frome, previously pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and causing grievous bodily harm.
    On Friday, Judge Mark Horton handed down the sentences in Bristol Crown Court, telling Hill he ”used the bus as a weapon to bully and intimidate Mr. Mead,” BBC News reported.
    The incident happened on April 5. The court was told Mead was biking to work when the bus drove too close to him.
    When the bus stopped, Mead propped his bike against the front of the vehicle and exchanged words with Hill, who remained in his cab, according to BBC.
    Closed-circuit television footage played in court then showed Mead pedaling off. The bus then overtakes him before sharply swerving to the left knocking the cyclist over.
    Mead suffered a broken leg and his bike was crushed, according to news reports.

    Was he drunk? They only hire booze hounds with suspended DLs.

    Cycling in London is crazy enough, even without the intentional road rage.
