When Motorists Attack: Road Rage in the Market

Disturbing news from CityNoise, where a motorist and a bike courier got into a heated exchange and physical altercation in the Market. The story, as it is known to Torontoist, goes like this:

…the driver threw a bunch of garbage out the window, the courier picked it up and threw it back in. He got out and threw coffee on her, she keyed the car. He proceeds to stomp on her bike and then hit her before bystanders pull him away.

Scooped from Darren J of BikeRefugee, the event was parlayed to Torontoist as an example of low tolerance in the biker-motorist relationship – although we think this is a rather extreme example. There was some unverified talk of a baseball bat and police involvement, but we will refrain from commenting on that which we are unsure of (this time).
Perhaps the cramped streets of Kensington should be reserved for pedestrians only?
The photos were taken by hool of CityNoise, who left the scene unharmed.
