A driver who deliberately ran over a cyclist after an argument in Oxford has been cleared of attempted murder but convicted of wounding with intent.

Rohan Crooks, 34, of Walthamstow, East London, had already pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm and dangerous driving.

The victim was knocked off his bicycle in Cuddesdon Way and dragged down the road by Crooks' car in October 2008.

Crooks went on the run for two years after the attack.

It happened shortly after an argument between the men outside shops in Blackbird Leys Road.

Crooks was on Thames Valley Police's most wanted list and eventually handed himself in earlier this year.

The victim, in his 20s, was seriously injured and spent several weeks in hospital.

Crooks was also found not guilty of possessing a bladed article and will sentenced on Monday.
