A black cab driver has been cleared by a jury at the Old Bailey of deliberately ramming his Taxi into a cyclist in an act of road rage.
Daniel Wentworth, 52, had been accused of using the Taxi “as a weapon” to knock James Williams from his bike during an altercation on Southwark Bridge.
The court was told he drove after the cyclist before his black cab collided with him.
The driver, who reported the incident to police himself, had admitted there was a confrontation but denied dangerous assault and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
Prosecutor William Gatward said the incident happened on January 9 last year, leaving Mr Williams with severe bruising and a damaged ankle.
Mr Wentworth was today found not guilty following a trial.
