A mother was found guilty of attempted grievous bodily harm today after a jury ruled she did deliberately try to run her Turbo charged 4x4 into a cyclist she had argued with.

A jury took just two hours and one minute to decide Natalie Pyne, 31, had aimed her white Audi Q7 at autistic Simon Edgley in a road rage attack in Kingston in June last year while she had at least four children in the car.

His bicycle was left mangled after the attack but he escaped with minor injuries.

Kingston Crown Court heard how Pyne claimed her 4x4 malfunctioned before she clipped Mr Edgley and went through the bay window of the Park Salon in Park Road causing more than £25,000 worth of damage.

But traffic officer PC Peter Traylor told the jury he could find “no fault” with Pyne’s “very powerful” car.

Witness Louisa Morris described hearing loud revs and tyre squeals before seeing Mr Edgley “roll over the bonnet and come off the side” of the car.

She said: "There seemed to be an argument about a potential collision.

"It all happened very fast.

"The cyclist was hit by the front of the car and pushed off his bike.”

Prosecutor James Lofthouse described the incident as classic “road rage.”

He said: “What happened was road rage.

“[Pyne] intended to cause Mr Edgley very serious harm. She was reckless.”

Pyne was also found guilty of dangerous driving and damaging property to the value of more than £5,000.

She will be sentenced on November 6 at Kingston Crown Court.

Jon Fray of the Kingston Cycling Campaign said: "I am not experienced in law but I suppose the police picked the charge of attempted GBH because they thought that is the one that would stick.

“I have some sympathy for people who think it should have been a harsher [charge.]  

“All I know is it could have been a lot worse for the cyclist involved.

"It is not all cyclists versus motorists on the road and thankfully these incidents happen very rarely."
