Miraculously, no one was seriously injured after a Berkeley motorist struck two cyclists before reportedly speeding off.

The driver appeared to quickly flee the scene, but, thanks to the growing popularity of mounted bike cameras, one of the cyclists caught the whole thing on tape.


On Thursday, YouTube user Bruno posted the video, which clearly shows a dark sedan drift into the bike lane and strike Bruno and his friend. The car then appears to flee the scene.

On his YouTube page, Bruno described the incident:

"Me and my friend were hit by a car in California -- Berkeley," he wrote. "The guy did not stop!"

Fortunately, a slow-motion clip of the tape showed both the car and the license plate. Bruno brought the tape to the Berkeley Police Department and reported:

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.

Negligent driving? Narrow road? Atrociously intentional? Watch Bruno's video in the YouTube clip below (fast forward to 2:38 for the incident), and let us know what you think in the comments section:
