A 92-year-old retired dental nurse was seriously hurt after being mowed down in the street by a man on a mobility scooter.
Mrs Wicken’s daughter Helen Lee, 57, from Sunbury-On-Thames, said the rider stopped to check on her but left when other witnesses arrived. She said that the pensioner cried, “I’m in so much pain ... he hit me from behind, I didn’t even see him” before two people came to her aid.
Mrs Wicken is still receiving treatment in hospital and Mrs Lee says the family are considering legal action against the scooter rider, if they can identify him, after police deemed it an accident.If it had been a retired police officer mown down, do you think they'd have been so quick to dismiss it?
And...so what if it was an accident? Don't they have a duty of care to find this idiot to prevent more 'accidents'?
