Miami Police are investigating accusations that a local doctor hit a father and son with his car as he weaved his way through Friday's Critical Mass bike ride.
According to a police report and interviews with victims, Mt. Sinai surgeon Irvin Willis drove his black Mercedes SL 550 into the Critical Mass crowd as it crossed the 79th Street Causeway on Friday evening, hitting 22-year-old Anthony Manzano. When Manzano's father tried to stop Willis's car, the doctor allegedly knocked him over too before running over his bicycle and driving off.
"If my dad hadn't jumped off the bike he would have run over him," says Manzano, who escaped with an injured wrist and bruised hip. "He had no concern for the health or well-being of anyone else. Apparently he had to be somewhere at that moment."
