Bad move on the cyclist's part then, don't you agree?From what I have read in previous articles, the cyclist grabbed the window on the side of the convertible while arguing with Bryant. From there it gets cloudy but eye witness accounts say that's when Bryant hit the gas pedal and the cyclist held on. Then Bryant went across the street to the left side to knock the cyclist off his car by hitting objects off the left side of the roadway. By doing so, killed the cyclist.
Fear is pretty powerful too. If someone was hanging onto your car, and you didn't know their intentions, only that they were angry, how would your driving be?Hard to speculate on intentions, but I would guess the lawyer was not trying to kill the cyclist. I think that holding onto the vehicle was a dumb move on the part of the cyclist. Rage is a powerful emotion. If the cyclist had been involved in an altercation earlier in the evening, it may have clouded his judgement in this instance. Regardless, this is a tragedy for all sides.
From what I read the vehicle was stopped when the cyclist grabbed it.I agree. wasn't trying to defend either party, just postulating how/why someone would grab onto a moving vehicle. and funetical's right, you don't grab onto a car, thats like messing with a mans horse.
