Shepparton police Sergeant Mark Washington yesterday said two motorcyclists were seen driving erratically across the city about 2.10
He said one of the motorcyclists, a Shepparton man, 26, was allegedly riding up on one wheel on High St when he struck a pedestrian crossing the intersection of High and North Sts.
Sgt Washington said the motorcyclist fled the scene, leaving the pedestrian, a Katandra man, 27, with a broken leg.
Sgt Washington said a second motorcyclist, a Shepparton man, 20, was arrested shortly after and is facing several charges, including unlicensed driving, conduct endangering life and evading police.
