He said: “I would have to imagine that the vehicle had to be travelling more than 30 mph. 

“You know what the traffic is like here, it’s quite congested, to hit people and to be catapulted up onto there [the bollard], he would have to have been exceeding the speed limit here. 

“We are still kind of baffled to how it could have got so high on the poll itself unless it hit another vehicle.”
