He quickly moves to the kerbside so that he wouldn’t be hit by the vehicle, which passes him.
But instead of continuing on, the car comes to a stop a few feet ahead.
Suddenly, the vehicle reverses at speed directly into the victim who falls to the floor.
The pedestrian was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, and has since been discharged.
