Hi, the motorcyclist was a colleagues husband. The pedestrian ran out between cars queuing at traffic lights rather than safely crossing at the lights. She just ran out and didn't look for bikes coming between the cars and he had to swerve to avoid seriously injuring her and has ended up in hospital needing skin grafts. As he is self employed this has a serious impact on his family and his insurers are asking for witnesses to the accident. If anyone did witness anything could they please PM me so I can put you in touch with my colleague. A lesson for all pedestrians, if you are going to cut through traffic rather than crossing at the lights please remember to look for bikes. I understand that thankfully the pedestrian wasn't badly injured but it could have been so much worse.
