Emma Way Tweet

Emma Way (@EmmaWay20) was driving her car on May 19th when she hit a cyclist, Toby Hockley, participating in the Boudicca Sportive race (a cycling event). It seems like the car driver was more concerned about how road cyclists annoyed her so she bragged about the incident on Twitter:

Definitely knocked a cyclist off his bike earlier – I have right of way he doesn’t even pay road tax! #bloodycyclists

The story got even more interesting when the local police sent a Twitter response to Way. It seems like some concerned Tweeps reported the incident.

Emma Way deleted her Twitter account as soon as the story started buzzing online and later apologized in an interview with ITV for what is being called now a “Twit And Run” case.

Some people underestimate the power of social media.

  1. […] Wait a second. That sounds so crazy it just made me spill my liter of Cola all over the chinchilla suede interior in my  HUMMER while I was driving down the highway, reading your blog on my new smart phone, and tweeting that I just hit a cyclist! You’re right that does sound crazy. Or maybe not. https://thejrexpress.com/2013/05/23/she-hits-a-cyclist-tweets-about-it-and-get-busted-by-the-police-t…. […]
