This is the shocking moment a cyclist is smashed into by a truck driver, who is then filmed speeding away from the scene.

The sickening footage shows the cyclist, who is in a yellow high-vis top and wearing a helmet, cycling along the edge of the road when struck by the pick-up truck.

It is unclear where in the UK the video was filmed.

The hit and run crash was captured by the cyclist’s helmet camera and you can see the truck not even slow down after hitting the rider.

The cyclist goes flying, sprawling into the road, near a grassy path and can be heard groaning in pain.

After a few seconds, a separate car can be seen pulling up near the cyclist, presumably to check if the rider is okay.

The disturbing footage was posted on Facebook, where it has been viewed more than 25,000 times.

It was shared to a UK drivers exposed page and captioned: ‘Hit & Run!

Idiot Transit van driver crashes into cyclist and drives off!’

The video has been viewed more than 55,000 times.

The status of the victim, who was driving along the edge of the carriageway, is unknown.

Stunned viewers took to Facebook to criticise the van driver.

Outraged Michael Ashman blasted: ‘That looked deliberate, I despise cyclists but that was totally out of order.

‘He needs jailing for attempted murder.’

Lee Roberts commented: ‘I moan about cyclists but come on, he was doing everything right, can’t see how anyone can blame the cyclist in this one.’

Martina Kotradyova wrote: ‘He did not even try to give some space to cyclist.’

While Emily James said: ‘That looked like a deliberate choice to move closer to the cyclist.

Whoever condones violence and harm against others in general, cyclist or not – regardless of whether it’s a car, gun, knife, etc needs an appointment with a psychiatrist.’
