Dashcam footage captured the moment a minibus taxi knocked down a cyclist in the process of bypassing traffic.

Dashcam video footage, which has been published on YouTube, captured the moment a minibus taxi in Fourways traffic knocked down a cyclist.

In the video, you can see a few minibus taxis breaking many road rules, first driving in the yellow lane, and doing so in an unroadworthy vehicle, reports Fourways Review.

The video zooms in to the one minibus taxi in question, to show that the vehicle was involved in a crash before with the damage clearly visible.

A cyclist can be seen riding in the yellow lane, and a minibus taxi then strikes him down. The rider looks bewildered after the incident, but thankfully, alive.

It is not clear exactly what condition the cyclist is in, or if he sustained any serious injuries during the incident.
