Recalling the incident, Harry said: "I wasn’t concentrating, I thought she’d crossed the road and then I pulled into the road and she was backed up against my car.
“She never said to me, ‘You should have watched what you were doing’ or made me feel bad. Even when she was laying with a broken ankle in the road she was just unbelievable, she didn’t scream."
Harry said his granddaughter Molly saw it all she was on a bus at the time and was horrified to see her nan screaming in agony in the road.
