Will Davison and Riana Crehan have escaped injury following a road incident while running on the Gold Coast.
Two-time Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 winner Davison was allegedly hit by a van Monday morning on Hope Island Road.
Crehan, a Supercars pit reporter, took to social media to vent her frustration at poor driving standards.
“The guy in the white van west bound Hope Island Road at 7:50 am who swerved intentionally at Will and I whilst running in the bike lane hitting Will, I’m sorry you’re so angry,” she wrote on Twitter.
“There (are) much bigger things in the world than you being pissed at two people on a morning jog.”
Following a flurry of replies, Crehan expressed her appreciation for the support in the wake of the incident.
“Thanks everyone for the concern,” she continued.
“Most importantly Will is fine. It just angers me that time after time Hope Island Rd is such a nightmare.
“It’s a suburban rd that constantly has accidents, bike crashes, dangerous roundabouts and list goes on”
Late last week Supercars Driving Standards Advisor Craig Baird also noted dangerous driving in the Hope Island area.
“I swear most people must be blind,” he wrote.
“Nearly got taken out three times.”
Davison declined to comment when approached to discuss the incident.

Went for a 80k bike ride today and ended up out Hope Island 🌴 Paridise Point way. I have an idea for @rianacrehan @will_davison maybe open up a glasses shop out that way. I swear most people must be blind. Nearly got taken out 3 times. #bikelife
