A ROAD rage driver ran over a cyclist who spat on his Land Rover.
Alan Moult, 74, aimed his two-litre Freelander at Nick Cook, leaving him with a broken pelvis and ribs and a torn penis.
The pair had squared up after the car’s wing mirror was accidentally damaged at traffic lights.
As his wife Irene begged him to stop, Moult chased after the victim when he cycled away before the pair squared up to each other further up the road.
When Mr Cook spat on the bonnet, retired engineer Moult got into the car and drove at him.
