Driver plows through cyclists at Critical Mass event in Porto Alegre, Brazil

Warning: Disturbing content within the video.

A driver in Porto Alegre, Brazil plowed his car through a mass of cyclists participating in a Critical Mass event, fled the scene and was later arrested and charged with attempted murder.

I really don’t have much more to say. The one take away I have from the video is look at how potentially dangerous/deadly an automobile can actually be.
