The total apathy of the woman driver involved and the culprit is amazing. Guy even had to call for an ambulance himself! Amazing!

That is absolutely disgusting.
Both drivers should be arrested for careless driving.
I wish the cyclist a speedy recovery.
Thank goodness for soup.

The driver of the first car said he didn't see the cyclist! I hope they test his eyes.

5 minutes in "Was he actually in the road?"

Both drivers absolutely at fault - both deserve the opportunity to "re-earn" their license.
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those can extrapolate from incomplete data.

I thought much the same as the above posters, i watched the video just the once with no sound on.
It looked an easy one to solve as to who was in the right and wrong.
The cyclist didn't have much chance or choice, you'd need to be very quick witted to avoid that collision.

This is one of the most sickening things I have ever seen!
That stupid woman says at about 9 minutes in "he was already on the ground" Then WHY DID YOU PULL OUT :!: :?:

Cyclist did the right thing, keeping claim and calling for help although it is amazing that no one else did it! The great british public road user = a bit thick.

Correct, the drivers are both retards and should do their driving test again, absolutely shocking
