Russia: Motorcyclist Who Hit Baby Was Drunk
A toddler has escaped serious injury after a drunk motorcyclist rode into his stroller at a zebra crossing in Russia.
CCTV cameras caught the rider moments before the accident swigging beer and tossing the bottle to the side of the road.
Footage taken from another driver's dashboard camera shows the baby being pushed by his grandfather over the zebra crossing when the rider suddenly appears from the left of frame and knocks the stroller over.
As one woman rushes to help the boy another passer-by takes a kick at the rider lying in the road.
The motorcyclist was arrested but later released after being fined.
Russia has become notorious for its poor road safety record after the proliferation of car dash cameras capturing road accidents on videos which are uploaded to the Internet.
