Cabbie Who Severed Cyclist's Leg Charged

The still un-named Toronto cyclist who lost his leg last weekend when squeezed between the rear end of a taxi and a signpost (see Taxi Driver Severs Cyclists' Leg in Violent Hit-and-Run) finally was coherent enough to give his statement to the police. The result:

Sultan Ahmed, 38, of Maple, Ontario has been charged with:

1) Criminal negligence causing bodily harm,
2) Dangerous operation causing bodily harm,
3) Fail to stop at scene of accident bodily harm,
4) Attempt to obstruct justice,
5) Aggravated assault,
6) Assault with weapon.

We still don't know the full story and the police are saying ‘‘Although charges have been laid, there are still some elements of the case that are under investigation.’’ The victim evidently was a serious cyclist- one article says that his bike was worth five thousand dollars.
