A motorist sped his car through a pack of more than 100 cycling activists in Brazil

A motorist sped his car through a pack of more than 100 cycling activists in southern Brazil on Friday, sending bikes and screaming riders flying through the air and landing hard on the asphalt in a scene captured on amateur video and posted online. No one was killed but at least 40 cyclists were injured, with most suffering cuts and broken bones. Police said the suspect fled from the scene of the incident in Porto Alegre, but was brought in for questioning on Monday after the authorities found his car. The man claimed the cyclists surrounded his vehicle and threatened him, but they denied this. Police said the man could face charges of attempted homicide. AP
