In the video, one can see the cyclist riding in the middle of the road of the Dublin Industrial Estate in Glasnevin. He refused to let pass the van driver who can be heard honking from behind. One can also observe the road to be wide enough for more than one vehicle to go through. In the middle of this, the cyclist turned and hurled abuses at the van driver and also showed his bike lock in a threatening gesture. Immediately after, the former crashed into a parked Nissan vehicle and he pirouetted in the air before landing heavily on the concrete roadway. Unfortunately, the cyclist, in his wave of anger, was unaware that the road had a slight bend to the left and the Nissan car was parked on the grass lane.
