Oak Park bicyclist ends up on street after words with motorist

A bicyclist told Sacramento police he was knocked to the street by a motorist in a sharing-the-road dispute.

The beef between the bicyclist and motorist occurred on a street in Oak Park about 3:30 p.m. Monday. The male bicyclist and the female driver were traveling in the same direction on 37th Street.

The bicyclist was trying to make his way around a parked car as he was being passed on the left by the motorist. The bicyclist believed that the driver was not sharing the roadway, passing very close.

Words were exchanged and the motorist eventually circled back around, again traveling alongside the bicyclist on Ninth Avenue. At that point, the bicyclist believes the motorist intentional struck him.

He was knocked to the pavement, suffering minor injuries. The description of the car was only given as a gray, four-door vehicle.
