Another brutal accident on a pedestrian crossing in Russia. They are so frequent, I’d treat zebras as top level personal safety threat if I lived there. Common denominators appear to be people crossing the road without checking if both lanes were safe and oncoming traffic not stopping.
Victim in this video was a 9 year old boy. The accident happened on the Simferopol highway in Chekhov, Russia. The boy was riding a bicycle and wanted to cross the road. He was on a pedestrian crossing and waited until the cars stopped but when the ones in near lane did, he took it as a sure enough sign that the crossing was safe. It wasn’t.
An oncoming truck hit him and only narrowly missed him with the wheels. The boy reportedly survived, although his bicycle took some pretty heavy beating. The truck flew into a ditch and rolled over.
Props to Best Gore member @pnn69 for the video:
