A MAN was left with a frac­tured skull after he was knocked down by a push bike in Manch­ester city cen­tre.

Steve Kelly, 50, was struck by a cy­clist as he crossed Withy Grove near the Arn­dale, on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 7.

Pedes­trian Steve says he spent 13 days in hospi­tal with head in­juries after the ac­ci­dent.

Steve, a door su­per­vi­sor from Beswick, had just fin­ished a shift at the Hard Rock Cafe when he was hit.

Steve doesn’t re­mem­ber much about the col­li­sion and only re­alised he’d been hurt when he woke up in Sal­ford Royal Hospi­tal.

He said: ”How a bike crashed into me, a 15 stone bloke, I don’t know.

“I’m not say­ing it was any­one’s fault be­cause I can’t re­mem­ber.”

“I still get dizzy spells but I’m on the mend now.

“I’d just like to urge peo­ple to be ex­tra care­ful in the evenings when they’re out and about.

“It gets dark early now so you re­ally need to watch where you’re go­ing.”
