The post said that the rider then underestimated the depth of a puddle, which caused the machine to cut out and the youngster to run off.

A photo attached to the tweet revealed that officers named the unknown driver as 'Ran Off', adding 'With Wet Feet' next to their address. They also wrote the words 'Crush' and 'It' next to the vehicle owner's surname and forename.
