Bus rage driver jailed for swerving to knock down cyclist
A bus driver who used his vehicle "like a weapon" to ram a cyclist off the road has been jailed for 17 months. Reckless Gavin Hill, 29, swerved into cyclist Phillip Mead after a road-rage bust-up. Mr Mead suffered a broken leg and fractured wrist as he was catapulted 10ft across the road. Hill pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and causing grievous bodily harm and was jailed for 17 months at Bristol Crown Court. Judge Mark Horton said his action "was not an accident" and added: "You used the bus as a weapon to bully and intimidate Mr Mead."
