With all the recent news of cars hitting cyclists, and cyclists hitting pedestrians, SFist brought us this shocking video, which maybe should be integrated into the driver's education course.

This Berkeley cyclist who goes by "Bruno" was riding with his buddy when a black car clipped the two, knocking them to the ground. As you you will see, the driver speeds off, but fortunately, Bruno had equipped his mountain bike with a video camera, which captured the entire incident -- and the driver's license plate.

Watch the harrowing crash (at 2:38)

In "Bruno's" own words:

"Yesterday I went to the police department and I reported the crime. I

also gave the video to the police officer. It was possible to identify

the number of the car on the video. The police have located the car and

the owner. Now I'm waiting for the return of the police on the case."

We're just glad neither cyclist was hurt.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
