A driver has been jailed for four years and 10 months after a forcing a motorcyclist off the side of a Milton Keynes bridge in a shocking fit of road rage.  

Following what Thames Valley Police have described as a “non-verbal exchange,” 34-year-old Nikesh Mistry used his BMW 320 to force a motorcyclist into oncoming traffic on Brickhill Street – forcing the rider into a metal railing. 

After the collision, the rider was catapulted over the bridge, falling several feet before landing in the undergrowth below. He sustained serious injuries before being airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge for treatment. 

Investigating officer PC Phil McGlue of the Thames Valley Police Roads Policing Unit, said: “This case is an extreme example of road rage.   

“Mistry was not in any immediate danger and chose to respond in a manner that was so violent and so disproportionate that he turned road disagreement into a very serious assault.”  

Mistry then collided head on with another vehicle, causing injury to the front seat passenger – who also required hospital treatment.  

He pleaded guilty to two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and one count of causing grievous bodily harm with intent, following a hearing at Aylesbury Crown Court in December.  

He was sent to prison by the same court on March 13, and was also disqualified from driving for four years and 10 months. Following his release and the expiry of the ban, he will need to take an extended re-test.
