ANGRY CYCLIST SCARES MOTORIST
A motorist said he was a victim of a bicycle rider’s road rage in Kellyville on Friday.
The driver, a 43-year-old Glenhaven man, told police the cyclist approached his car in Glenhaven Road, near the corner of Green Road, about 8.15am.

The rider suddenly swore at him through the car window and kicked its door, denting it.
The driver said he felt frightened and drove off down Samantha Riley Drive, with the bike rider pursuing him. He had a car accident while driving away from the cyclist, who continued abusing him.
