A PENSIONER has been knocked over by the backdraft from a wagon for a second time.
Birdsedge woman Beryl Smith was blown over by a gust of wind from a passing HGV.
The incident is a shocking case of déja vû for Beryl.
The unlucky villager was blown into the A629 Penistone Road by a speeding lorry at almost exactly the same spot in 2008.
In the latest incident, Beryl was walking on the pavement using her wheeled zimmer frame when a large wagon heading for Sheffield went thundering past.
The force of the wind knocked her backwards and she keeled over and banged the back of her head.
The lorry driver did not stop but she was helped up by a couple of good samaritans in a passing van.
One of the pair helped her home and called the local doctors and a nurse was sent out to check she was okay.
She said: “I was quite a way from the edge of the pavement, as far over as I could go.
“I was going down to the postbox when a large wagon went past and I just fell straight on my back.”
More than a week on, Beryl said she still had a sore head and felt a bit achey.
