The cyclist reached out to VicPD after the video was shared online

Victoria Police say they’ve found the cyclist who was clipped by a driver on Monday afternoon.

The incident was caught on camera by a separate driver’s dashcam. In the video, it appears that the cyclist was driving on the side of the road when a car tried to pass her, and clipped her bike with the passenger side mirror.
