Does anyone recognise this cyclist? If so you can get yourself 200 euros, and do a good deed in the process.
Because the cyclist was a man who had been snapped by a Viennese pensioner who claims he was a road rage vandal that ran him and his wife over when they were out for a stroll.
The incident happened when the couple were walking along the natural park area the Lobau at Orth an der Donau, when they claim they were run over by the cyclist. But instead of helping, he had got back on his bike, left his name which turned out to have been false, and sped off.
But not before the injured OAP had grabbed his phone and despite the pain from his injuries, he had snapped this image. And the OAP has now put up a 200 Euro reward via the police for anyone that can identify him.
The OAP suffered a broken hand, his wife cuts and bruises to her legs.
The ambulance for the pair was called by a witness to the accident, and the pair were taken to ther SMZ Ost hospital.
And to make sure he gets his man, the OAP has also hung wanted posters on the cycle routes near where he was injured.
