PUBLISHED: 10:04 22 March 2017 | UPDATED: 10:12 22 March 2017
Dramatic CCTV footage of a man being left for dead after callous crooks collided with him in Cuffley was aired on Crimewatch on Monday.
Viewers of the BBC programme were told to keep their eyes on the silver car as the clip began and they were told that the occupants of the vehicle were believed to have broken into a workman’s van.
The owner of the van and his friend spot them and try and stop the theft at about 11.45am in Sopers Road, Cuffley, on Wednesday, November 2
The silver car can then be seen speeding off and the workman, who is in his 30s, tries to make them stop but he is thrown into the air by the vehicle and left for dead on the road.
A CCTV shot of the silver car close up was also released where the crooks can just about be seen through the car window.
An ambulance spokesman told the Potters Bar Edition: “We received a call that morning to reports of a road traffic collision involving a pedestrian.
“We sent an ambulance and a rapid response vehicle who treated the man on the scene.”
The victim was taken to Barnet Hospital for further treatment.
PC Jodie Bolton, who is investigating, said: “This was an extremely serious incident.
“The victim suffered significant injuries and is lucky to be alive.
“I would urge anyone who has any information about those who may be responsible to contact me.
“If you can help police or know who was involved, call 101 or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
