Toronto driver fights Toronto cyclist in wild road rage video
In the war between Toronto drivers and Toronto cyclists, there are never any winners — except, sometimes, for the people who love to watch wild ass fight videos online.
This week, we have one doozy of a dustup between an insanely strong looking motorist and a guy on a bike who was either brave enough or stupid enough to puncture said motorist's tire before trying to speed off on two wheels.
Spoiler: He didn't get away.
Fortunately for the masses, someone happened to witness and film what happened.
In a clip posted by to Twitter on Tuesday, we see a white pickup truck slightly askew at a green light near College and Dufferin. A man can be seen getting out of the driver's seat at the very beginning of the video.
Shortly afterward, we see the same man pushing a bike and its rider out in live traffic, toward the sidewalk. He then yells at the cyclist before walking back toward the driver's side of his truck.
This is where things really start to get crazy.

Presumably angry about what had happened and thinking he had enough time to get away, the cyclist then quickly pokes the driver's front tire with something sharp.
The motorist was swift in his vengeance, running after the bike and catching the cyclist after just a few feet. He grabs the cyclist, who grabs his bike, and tries to run away. From there, it's a game of cat and mouse (cat being the driver, mouse being the cyclist.)
Eventually, back at the intersection, the motorist wrests the bicycle away from its rider and swings it all around like some sort of Hulk-type creature.
A cop eventually intervenes and the cyclist can be seen scurrying away along the sidewalk as the video comes to an end.
Toronto Police confirmed to blogTO that the occurence took place on Tuesday, June 15 at 11:10 a.m. in the Dufferin Street and College Street area.
"At this time this is an on-going and active investigation for a Threatening and Mischief to Vehicle," says TPS Constable Jenifferjit Sidhu.
