A man was badly injured after he was shoved in front of a car when he stopped to help a ‘drunk’ woman.

The victim fell into the road and was hit by a car doing 50mph, all caught on the vehicle’s dashcam.

He was rushed to hospital in a serious condition and suffered a fractured right ankle and knee, road rash and a fractured shoulder.

Before the incident the man, who is in his thirties, was walking home from a concert PNE Amphitheatre in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

He was attempting to help a woman, who appeared to be intoxicated, when a male she was with became aggravated and pushed him.

The perpetrator remains on the run following the incident at around 10.30pm on Friday, June 15.

The footage has just been released by Vancouver Police Department detectives who are attempting to identify the man, who is described as Caucasian, in his mid twenties and around 6ft tall.
