Terrifying dash cam footage shows a cyclist coming inches away from being crushed between a car and a bus in a shocking hit-and-run incident.

The clip shows the cyclist riding up Humberstone Lane in Leicester past a single-decker bus during rush hour on Tuesday morning.

The scene, which is partially obscured by a lorry, shows a black Renault Clio come to a stop as a purple bus tries to pull out.

As the cyclist comes astride the bus, we see the Renault speed into the rider causing his bike to go under the car’s wheels.

The assailant then drives over the bike and speeds off leaving the cyclist lying injured on the road.

The footage was released by Leicestershire Police who are now appealing for any witnesses or other drivers with Dashcam footage of the incident.
