Driver in Leicester reversed over woman before driving off
 
Footage has been released showing the moment a driver knocks a woman
down in the street before driving off. The 20-year-old victim was
injured in the collision after being sent flying down the road in
Leiecester last Tuesday. She was crossing the road when the car reversed
into her outside a Co-op in Briton Street at around 4.30pm.

Footage released by Leicestershire Police show the moment the two men
in the car initially got out to check on the woman before getting back
in and speeding away.

PC Fiona White, who is investigating, said: ‘We would like to speak to
anyone who was in Briton Street that afternoon and who may have seen the
collision take place.

Was it the injured woman or the plice officer who was on the bike?

It's a police appeal for witnesses. Best to publicise it.
Were you in the vicinity?

So have you posted it in the more widely trafficked NGs as well?

For example, uk.politics.misc or uk.legal?

What would I be doing in Leicester, of all places? I went there once
(1973, IIRC). There was nothing of note to see.

If you're going to do that, ukpm or uk.legal are as good as anywhere, I
suppose.

The woman is one of the 19000 people on foot (*) injured on the roads
each year in incidents that don't involve a bicycle. It's a fact of
interest to some that do recreational cycling in the uk.

No doubt, as is normal practice, the woman was walking in the road with
her back to the direction of travel so it was her own fault, there will
not be enough evidence for careless or dangerous driving and the person
operating the car will only get a small fine for failing to stop.

(*) Have you managed to work out yet why it is possible to quote figures
of 19000, 5800 and 389?
