A Facebook appeal attempts to track the man responsible for seriously injuring cyclist Mark Canning, which has received over 11,500 shares so far. After severe road rage culminated in the driver of a Range Rover hitting Mr. Canning’s bike intentionally, people across Britain are spreading the story via the social networking site to try to find the ‘maniac’ responsible.

Mark Canning had been cycling along the A6 when he was intentionally hit at Whatstandwell, in Derbyshire. Mr. Canning, originally from Pixton, said that the driver became extremely aggressive after he had to brake hard to avoid crashing into the back of the Range Rover. The driver then got out of his vehicle and ran towards him.

Broken hand and other minor injuries

Mr. Canning recognised the serious danger he faced and planned to get off the road at the next lay-by.  However, the driver proceeded to clip the wheel of the bike intentionally, which resulted in Mr. Canning breaking his hand and sustaining many other minor injuries.

After the crash, Mark Canning’s wife, Elise, posted pictures of her husband’s injuries online to appeal for information – resulting in almost 12,000 shares so far. The Derbyshire Police force told media that they are investigating the incident and have made an appeal for anyone who saw the accident at 11:30 BST, or has more information, to come forward to police. The man has been described as being in his fifties or sixties, and had a grey-haired female passenger in the car at the time.
