Cyclist 'knocked from bike' on freeway by Wayne Flower: Herald Sun April 04, 2010 3:40PM

A WOMAN has been seriously injured after being pushed off her bicycle by an idiot in a moving car this afternoon.

The 53-year old Berwick woman claims she was riding her bicycle west on the Princes Highway at Officer just after noon when a white Commodore travelling in the same direction changed lanes and slowed before the front seat passenger leant out of the window and pushed her.
The woman fell from her bike onto the road as the Commodore sped off.
Police said it was lucky the woman was not run over by a following 4WD, which stopped and the driver rendered assistance.
A short time later, two men aged 19 and 18, both from Cranbourne, presented at their local police station claiming there had been an accident.
The pair were subsequently arrested and are currently assisting police with inquiries
