taxi bike courier

Someone took video of taxi hitting Toronto bike courier

It's not always easy to bike around in Toronto, and one local courier knows this first hand after an incident with a taxicab on Thursday.

In the video footage, which is now spreading online, the cab looks like it hits the Favour Delivery person and knocks him to the sidewalk. After he gets up he yells, "You're going to jail, that is assault."

A number of bystanders, including another cyclist, appear to stick around. "For two blocks you've been on his ass," says one onlooker to the taxi driver.


As the Toronto Star reports, police are now looking into the crash, which happened on Bay near Charles. Favour Delivery, which is headquartered in Texas, is also looking into this apparent altercation.

"We are extremely concerned by the incident involving one of our Favour Runners and a motorist in Toronto," Favour Delivery spokesperson Tina Heileman tells us via email

"The safety of our Runners is a top priority. We are in close contact with the Runner. The police have been informed and are currently investigating the incident."
