iHEARTMEDIA News/Talk KOGO/SAN DIEGO's BOB "SULLY' SULLIVAN was knocked off his bike by an angry driver while participating in the annual CHALLENGED ATHLETES FOUNDATION's 620-mile MILLION DOLLAR CHALLENGE with riding partner ERIC NORTHBROOK.
"He hit the gas, hit me from behind … threw me off my bike," SULLIVAN told ABC10.
As they came into the home stretch, NORTHBROOK said, "There was a guy on the horn .. excessively on the horn." A man driving a red FORD RANGER was stuck behind a support van that was escorting the two drivers. The van had signs on the back cautioning, "Cyclist Ahead."
SULLIVAN explained to the driver that NORTHBROOK is a paraplegic and can't go that fast because he hand-peddles his bike. The agitated man responded:, 'I don't care if it's f-ing God up there. Get out of the f-ing road.'"
SULLIVAN then stopped talking to the man and got back on his bike. The truck's driver accelerated and hit Sullivan's bike, causing him to fall to the roadway and sustained several injuries.
