The accident was recorded in the Bayramic district of the Canakkale province, northwestern Turkey.

The woman slightly struggles with the motorbike but moves again only to hit the same pedestrian as he is crossing the road.
This time, both of them fall and man quickly gets up to help the motorcyclist with her bike as people move towards them to help.
According to local media, both the rider and pedestrian only suffered a few bruises as a result.
The footage spread in local and social media and netizens weighed in on the funny incident
One user named ‘Mubeccel’ said: “The woman will surly learn to ride the bike but in my opinion, this man should leave the city, just in case.”
Another ‘Cagatay Celik’ said: “Obviously the man is helping her stand up so she can hit him for a third time.”
A third netizen added under the name ‘Has Machete’: “Maybe she thought ‘I didn’t hit him hard enough the first time so let’s try again.'”
