Motorcyclist hits a man - level 3

Motorcyclist hits a man - level 3

12-03-2015 07:00

CCTV footage has been released by the Met Police, showing a motorcyclist knocking down a pedestrian, and then shouting at him before driving off.

In what has been described as a truly heartless act, the video shows the motorcyclist crashing into a man crossing a road in Sutton, as traffic begins to move off at the lights.

The rider is knocked off his bike and the pedestrian is sent flying down the road.

We can then see the motorcyclist getting up but instead of helping the fallen man, he yells at him and exits the scene.

The victim is then left lying alone in the middle of the road.

The pedestrian, aged 53, was taken to a South London hospital for treatment to his injuries and he has since been discharged.

Police are now appealing for information about the identity of the motorcycle rider.

Difficult words: CCTV footage (security camera video), pedestrian (somebody who’s walking), heartless (without caring), victim (person hurt in an accident), discharge (to allow a patient to leave hospital), appeal (to make a serious request).
