A shocking moment unfolded in London after a cyclist allegedly hit and knocked over a 1-year-old child and didn't even apologize after being confronted by the child's mother. Victoria Grant recently took to social media and posted pictures of her daughter Freya Clancy who was left with bruises on her face following the incident in Victoria Park, east London. The angry 33-year-old revealed that she was walking along the path when Freya's arms got caught in the spokes and the infant was dragged along the ground until the female cyclist finally hit the brakes. "The cyclist came flying out of the gate and her front wheel hit my daughter in the face. It was awful. I was screaming and shouting 'you have just run over my daughter,'" she told The Sun.
I support cycling etc..— Shaun 🅙 (@da_judge) September 10, 2020
But my issue is things like this.. A cyclist once drove into my car door whilst I was parked...
Nothing... Just rode off telling me tough shit...
If I had hit him... I would be arrested..
I think there should be some form of registration for cyclists..
My daughter is 1 year old and got hit & dragged by a cyclist in our local park. The woman drove off and wouldn't comply with giving me her details. Not even a sorry!! My daughter was taken by an ambulance! wrote Grant on Twitter. The mother-of-3 is currently trying to track down the woman responsible for her daughter's injuries, claiming that the woman was not ready to share her details, reports Daily Mail. "It just all happened so quickly, I had no time to grab my daughter. We were on the walking path. Cyclists are allowed to be there but pedestrians have priority," shared the resident of Bow, east London.
Precious wee love. What a vile creature on a bike, but maybe it's the ridiculous seats which trigger testosterone in shedloads on all the. Vile creatures on a bike— thelmarouge (@thelmarouge) September 10, 2020
"I reported it to the police after we got out of hospital and they have logged the incident and will get back to me in a couple of days. All I want is an apology from the woman and for her to slow down. She wouldn't have been able to stop if she did see her as she was going too fast," she continued. A video of the aftermath of the alleged accident soon emerged on social media. The woman accused of hitting the child was seen confronting a member of the public but she reportedly remained stationary and made no attempts to leave. "You have knocked over a child and now you are moving away from the scene of an accident. I am informing you in a car, or on a bicycle or on a scooter, if you strike a pedestrian you are duty-bound to report it," a man filming the collision was heard saying.

The cyclist wearing pink leggings and a grey top can be seen shouting and saying that she is "standing here and not going. I haven't got a f****** phone, you're driving me nuts. Then the man begins arguing with another pedestrian saying, she is "trying to do the right thing" by calling the cops. As the situation between the cyclist, pedestrian, and the man filming continues to escalate the female bike says she is going to "sue him."
Cyclists are getting out of control both on and off the road— NorthWest Designer (@nmwdesign) September 10, 2020
The rise of electric bikes is making it even worse with the extra speed they can achieve.
"I have not given you permission to tape me so you take that off please," the cyclist is heard saying. She then clicks pictures of the man who was filming the incident, calls him a "stalker" and labels him as a "proper weirdo." Following this, the man and the cyclist continue arguing. Soon they are interrupted by a man claiming to be an off-duty police officer. As he appears in the shot, the man can be seen speaking to the female cyclist, who then claims that the "kid comes in the middle of my path, I don't even see the kid." After hearing her story, the man turns to the guy filming the incident and tells him that the incident was not necessarily a criminal matter but he disagrees and says hitting a child is a criminal matter.
