VIDEO: Cyclist caught on camera in comical crash
The moment a cyclist crashed into a Wath couple's car - before walking away apparently unhurt.

A CYCLIST was caught on camera crashing into the back of a parked car, before picking himself up, checking his handlebars and walking away apparently unharmed.

Wath couple Craig and Amanda Aitcheson couldn’t believe what they were seeing when they watched footage from their CCTV camera after finding their Mitsubish Shogun badly damaged on Sunday morning.

Amanda, of Sandymount Road, said of the comical clip: “We’ll probably not find out who it was but it made our day when we looked at the tape.”

 

Amanda said Craig had got out of bed after hearing a noise at 10.30pm on Saturday and seen the man on the pavement adjusting his bike’s handlebars.

“He didn’t think anything of it until the morning after, when we saw how badly the car was damaged,” she said.

“The light is smashed, the bumper is cracked and there’s a little strip light he’s broken, too.

“It’s probably going to amount to about £500 and it’s just another cost we could live without.

“You would have thought he would have knocked on the door or come back the next day —when he’d come round a bit.”

Amanda said she did not think there was any point in contacting the police about the incident but wanted to share her video to “name and shame” the culprit and possibly gather information about him.
