Aberdeen Central MSP Kevin Stewart has called for the incident to be investigated.
He said: “My thoughts are with the woman involved in this horrific incident and I hope she is able to make a speedy recovery.
“I worry how much worse this could have been if the street was as busy as your more typical weekends.
