    OMG. :eek4:

    This is probably one of the worst murderous driver-assaults on a pedestrian ever seen in this country. It happened in Brighton Kemptown on Thurs 14 Jan at 3.40pm. The car involved was a white Fiat. If you were in the area, think back carefully! This person needs to be arrested.

    TBH it looks like one of those things where someone is just driving like an idiot with complete disregard for the speed limit and context and doesn't give a **** about the potential consequences.

    When / if the police get this person before the courts, I really, really hope we're not going to get one of those '6 week driving ban' sentences. :rolleyes:

    You'd have to be rather engrossed to not realise what had happened

    More probable uninsured or drunk driver

    Hitting a man in a fiat 500 at that speed? You'd have to be on meth not to notice.

    Oh my goodness.. I live near Brighton and regularly travel into town and walk with my baby son. To think there is a dangerous driver like this on the loose is terrifying! That poor man. I hope that driver gets what is coming to him!

    No mention by the way that they know the sex or identity of the driver as yet.

    Or her.
    I can't remember the last time I saw a 500 driven by a man.
    Either way they should have them soon enough.

    Let's hope this person is brought to justice, it's intolerable seeing someone doing that and getting away with it.
