This is the horrifying moment a smirking BMW driver smashes into a medical student riding his bike on Easter Sunday.
CCTV footage shows Thonmoy Josh Dey being thrown off his bike by a driver who had been using the wrong side of the road.
The 22-year-old has now been left with a life-threatening brain bleed and has said he is apprehensive about getting on a bike again following the incident.
The video shows Thonmoy riding his bike down Swain’s Lane in north London, which has a speed limit of 20mph.

The black BMW then comes speeding down the wrong side of the road, knocking him off his bike, and then continuing to drive down the street, barely slowing down after hitting Thonmoy.
The student was set to sit his exams in May and told The Ham & High that he doesn’t really remember much of the incident.
‘I was just hit with such force.
‘I remember waking up in hospital and just asking what on earth happened, and where was my bike? I was so confused.’
He said he was stunned when he was able to view the footage and said what shocked him the most was the way the perpetrator had been driving.
‘He was on the wrong side of the road.
‘I could even see the guy’s face – it looks like he’s smiling like it’s just a normal day. He hit a cyclist and ran.’
In addition to suffering a brain bleed, his injuries also include knee ligament damage and his nose has been ‘broken in multiple bits’.
Despite the accident however, Thonmoy said he doesn’t think it will stop him riding a bike in the future, but admits he will be holding off for the rest of the year.
‘I don’t think it’ll deter me in the long-term, but I can’t see being back on a bike this year.
‘I don’t want to get back on a bike because I don’t want to think about getting hit by a car.’
Police are currently investigating the incident but have not yet made any arrests.
After obtaining the CCTV Thonmoy passed it to investigating officers and hopes the footage will help identify the driver number plate TF07 JKS – and bring him to justice.
If you have any information regarding the incident then you can call the police on 101 quoting reference number CAD 5769 of April 21.
