A man appeared to have a very over the top reaction after a car lightly bumped into him, with the driver accusing him of putting on 'quite a performance’. You can see how the action unfolded here:
CCTV footage shows the bloke standing behind a silver pick-up truck as it backs into a driveway in Bridgerule, Devon while he is waving out another vehicle that is off camera.
The man then appears to bump his bum into the truck and despite the fact it barely seems to touch him, he screams as though he’s in agony and drops to the ground holding onto the back of his ankle.
In the clip, he can be heard shouting at the driver: "Ahh, you've got my foot stuck, move forward.”
The man then hobbles over to another fella, asking him: “Did you see that?” while the truck clears off up the road.
The man goes on to say that it was ‘right on the tendon’ and continues to hop along on one leg before leaning on a wall.
After looking up the road to try and catch a look at the truck and its driver, his pal offers the man a hand and a lift in his van.
But the driver is not at all convinced that the bloke was actually hurt and has accused him of putting on an ‘Oscar’ worthy performance.
The driver, who did not want to be named, told The Sun: "It is just ridiculous. I heard him screaming as if he had given birth to triplets or stood on a landmine.
"I knew he was there because I looked in the side mirror. But next thing I know, he has jumped behind me and he has his hands in the air.
"What a joke, an absolute flipping joke.
"Quite a performance. It's like he was going for an Oscar."
Devon and Cornwall Police confirmed they had been called to an incident on Bailey Terrace at 1.27pm on February 11.
A spokesperson told the newspaper: "This appears to be a low-speed collision between a car and a pedestrian.
"One person reported minor injuries.
"Officers attended and spoke to the pedestrian and the driver.
"There was no further police action and the log is now closed."
