Cyclist car accident

Shocking footage has emerged from Brazil, showing a drunken motorist driving along, seemingly oblivious to the fact that a cyclist he had hit was wedged in his windscreen.

58-year-old Jose Adil Simioni travelled an unbelievable five miles before he was forced to stop by other road users who blocked his car after witnessing the shocking sight.

Initially, onlookers believed they were watching a publicity stunt involving a dummy, but realised the grisly truth on closer inspection.

Simioni had hit cylist Marco Aurelio Dlovski, who was on his way home from work, while trying to negotiate a bend in the town of Pinhiaius, south-east Brazil.

But rather than stop, Simioni was in such a drunken stupor that he failed to notice the poor man's lower body draped over his bonnet.

The 31-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

Simioni was arrested by police and quickly bundled into the back of an SUV to prevent him being attacked by the enraged crowd. He now faces charges of manslaughter and drink-driving.

His victim's sister, Isa Dlovski wrote on her Facebook page: "I'll never forgive his killer".
