A shocking scene in Brazil was caught on tape, as a car drives through a crowd of bicyclists. Amazingly, no one was killed.

More than 100 bicyclists were riding through the streets of Porto Alegre when a driver sped through the crowd, sending bikes and their riders into the air.

At least 40 cyclists were injured, but no one was killed.

Police arrested a 47-year-old man. The driver reportedly told police that riders surrounded his vehicle and began beating him, which made him panic and fear for his life.
