Alarming footage captured by CCTV reveals an instant where a pedestrian barely avoids getting hit by a car which was beyond the control of the driver.
The man was peacefully walking down the street when the unexpected accident took place. Then he turns around, and instantly tracks the vehicle racing towards him, with little to no time to spare. The man’s swiftness when he dropped all his shopping bags and ran with all his might undoubtedly became his life-saving move.
The video is said to be recorded in West Yorkshire. It shows a black colored Audi speeding up behind a truck, before hardly hitting into its rear and then flipping over the pavement in the direction of the pedestrian.
This video was originally published on a public Facebook group called Major/Minor Crimes in Batley Dewsbury & Kirklees on the 3rd of May. The incident probably took place the previous day.
As expected, Facebook users immediately took to the comment section to criticize the behavior of the driver. Others were, however, pleased that the guy with the shopping bag managed to escape without any injury.
