Watch the chilling moment a motorist runs over a motorbike rider

Horrifying dashcam footage has captured the moment an alleged drunk driver ran over a postal worker, breaking his neck and leaving him permanently disabled. 

Andy Brown, 60, was travelling down Adelaide’s Anzac Highway on a motorbike when a woman in an SUV drove over him at 7:36pm on October 29, 2022.

The woman, who had two children in the car at the time, allegedly fled the scene without checking on Mr Brown who was left lying on the road. 

Eighteen months later he is still going through rehab and doctors have told him he will likely never recover from the injuries.

South Australian Police allege the woman was more than three times the blood alcohol limit at the time.

Mr Brown had to step down from his job after the crash and fears he may never be able to ride a motorbike again.

‘[She] ploughed into me 60km an hour, hadn’t braked, just smashed straight into the back of my bike, then she roared off [and] left me for dead in the middle of the road,’ he told 9News.

His partner Chantal Elsworthy said she thought Mr Brown was dead when she was told what had happened.

‘When I got the call, I thought he was dead. She ran over his head and his chest and he was dead,’ she said.
