    Angry 13 yr Nephew knocked off his bike, no one stopped !

    Thank god he's gonna be ok !

    My 13yr old Nephew was knocked off his bike yesterday on a fairly busy road. Now, I know that accidents happen etc etc but not only did the person that hit him not stop but also the cars behind that swerved around him while he was in the road

    He managed to get up but then collapsed into a bush at the side of the road, fortunately his G/F's mum saw him as she lives nearby and called for help. She said he was dazed and "jelly" like, he recalls bouncing on the road

    He spent the night in hospital but is ok.

    I could see reasons for the hit and run driver not stopping, no insurance, drunk even in shock whatever (not saying that's right), but how can drivers behind swerve around a kid lying in the road and not stop to help !! makes my blood boil !! just what kind of world are we living in

    That's awful, I know I would have stoped to help anyone in an accident like that, let alone a kid. It's come to something when poeple just think that situations like that are normal and it's 'every man for himself'

    Hope he's ok.

    Si, That sucks....

    But unfortunately it doesn't surprise me! Thats the wirral for you these days.

    When I was a kid I was deliberately run off the road by a 7.5t wagon. The passenger even leaned out and smacked me on the head. I go no help and had to walk home. I didn't ride a bike again for 10 years!

    Had the exact some experience with a cat on the road, nobody stopped, everybody just drove round.

    Sickens me the attitude of people nowadays

    Glad he's OK though, thats the main thing

    Report it to the police.

    You never know there might have been some CCTV or something

    I'm shocked no one stopped, but glad he's ok.

    I couldn't just carry on if I saw a kid in the street.

    He's very lucky indeed, him being alright is all that matters at the end of the day, gave his mum quite a shock.

    It happened on Borough Road, Birkenhead, close to where the new appartments are (old college site). Hoping there is CCTV down there, I think there is from memory on a tall mast in the middle of the road.

    It would be nice if that shows the accident and the driver can be caught before they do it again !

    The same thing hapened to a bloke I know , only thing is he was a traffic warden and someone knocked him off his scooter , and everyone else just steered around him as he lay in the road with the bike on his ankle .
    I know traffic wardens are a5535 , but even that surprised me.
