Rochester postie Michael Sanders escaped with a few scratches when he came off his bike on Thursday morning.
Eyewitness Michelle Bubb said she was driving to work along the Rochester-Kyabram Road when she saw a dog run out in front of the bike.
She said the large brown dog ran out near the Caltex Service Station and hit the front wheel of the bike.
Mrs Bubb witnessed Mr Sanders fly over the handlebars of the bike and land on his back.
She called 000 and a nurse arrived on the scene a few minutes later to assist.
Mrs Bubb said the dog was hit but ran away.
She said she felt ‘‘shocked and teary’’ after seeing the accident happen.
‘‘I felt really awful for the postie and the dog,’’ she said.
Mr Sanders said he was recovering well and thanked the community for their support.
He visited Mrs Bubb when he came out of hospital Thursday evening.
‘‘That made my day,’’ Mrs Bubb said.
