BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- The Colorado State Patrol is looking for the driver of an SUV who followed several bicyclists down a highway honking and nearly forcing one of them off the road.

Dirk Friel posted a video on a website on Sunday showing the driver slowly trailing the cyclists as the driver repeatedly honks the horn at them throughout the two-minute clip.

Friel tells the Longmont Times-Call he was worried the driver would cause an accident. He says his biking companion had to use his hand to push off as the vehicle finally passed them.

The state patrol says it has received other complaints about the SUV and they are investigating.
