A motorbike rider was allegedly savagely beaten as he lay on the road moments after crashing into a young mother.

Kira-Lee Cornish, 21, and a male friend were crossing Copeland Road in Lethbridge Park, western Sydney, about 6.30pm on Wednesday.

Ms Cornish was left with a broken leg, a cracked spine, and suffered a deep gash to her calf when the bike slammed into her.

Justin Wall, who was driving a car behind the bike, said Ms Cornish hesitated in the middle of the road before stepping into the rider’s path.

‘The rider went to swerve away from the female and that’s when the bike hit her. I pulled over and jumped out of my car,’ Mr Wall told Daily Mail Australia.

‘I saw her on the ground covered in blood from her leg so I took my shirt off and rapped it around her leg.’

Mr Wall said as he attended to Ms Cornish, her male friend ran over and attacked the bike rider, knocking him to the ground.

‘He started stomping on the riders helmet which was still on the rider, so I ran over to the male and pushed him off,’ he said.

‘He was yelling out “but he f**king hit her” and I told him it wasn’t the rider’s fault.’

Mr Wall claimed the man told Ms Cornish he was ‘on the run’ and and ‘shouldn’t be here’ before putting her phone in her bag.

‘At this stage the rider was sitting on the ground and the male runs back up to the rider and starts attacking him again. I then ran back to the male and pushed him away again,’ he said.

The man then left the scene as more motorists pulled over the help until police and ambulances arrived.

Mr Wall gave a statement to police who are investigating. Numerous witnesses to the incident backed up his version of events on social media.

Ms Cornish was rushed to hospital along with the rider, who was not badly hurt.

‘I’m doing OK, I’m in a lot of pain. I’m about to go in for surgery. I have a crack in my spine, lost nerves to foot due to the gash in my leg, plus my leg is broken,’ she said.

The mother-of-one admitted the crash was entirely her fault as she crossed the road without looking at the traffic, and apologised to the rider.

Ms Cornish thanked Mr Wall for coming to her aid, and the other bystanders who stopped to help.

‘Without [Mr Wall] I probably would not be here,’ she said. 

‘I would like to thank everyone that helped me yesterday I appreciate it in so many ways… kind community.’
