Police in Sutton have released CCTV footage of a road traffic collision between a pedestrian and motorcyclist where the motorcyclist gesticulated and drove off.

The Police are hoping to trace the motorcyclist after the man he collided with was injured at the Malden and London Road junction in Sutton.

Officers are also appealing to witnesses of the crash to get in contact, as they may be able to assist with the investigation.

The incident happened shortly before half past midnight on Saturday 28th February.
Detective Sergeant Dave Jarvis of Sutton Police said this was a truly heartless act:

It would have been obvious to the rider of the motorcycle that the pedestrian he had collided with was seriously injured. To act in the way he did, shouting at the unconscious man and driving off from the scene without attempting to seek medical help, was a truly heartless act.

The pedestrian was taken to a south London hospital for treatment, and has now been discharged.
Anyone who witnessed this incident or has any information is asked to contact the Sutton Police.
Nobody has been arrested, and the investigation is still ongoing.
