Frinton visitors 'seriously hurt' in bike pavement crash
A couple were "seriously injured" when they were struck by a high-powered motorbike on a pavement.
The accident happened in Cliff Way, Frinton, at about 20:30 BST on Saturday.
The Berkshire couple, who were visiting relatives in the seaside town, were struck from behind by the motorbike on the pavement.
The man, 64, suffered a fractured skull and three breaks to his left arm and the woman, 60, broke her arm.
The couple remain at Colchester General Hospital where their conditions are described as "stable".'Callously walked away'
It is thought the motorbike rider lost control and mounted the pavement.
Police said the rider of the motorbike, which ended up down an embankment, spoke briefly to one of the victims as she lay injured on the ground.
The rider, who was wearing an open-faced crash helmet, left the scene in a silver car which had come to collect him.
The motorbike involved was a red 1100cc Yamaha XVS. Police are trying to trace the motorcyclist.
Sgt Dave Cook said: "We know that the motorcyclist went to talk to the injured woman while she lay on the ground.
"Her husband was unconscious nearby. He said a few words then callously walked away from the couple and got into a car that came to collect him."
