The all too common scenario we see on Best Gore often – mother with kid(s) is crossing a road, a kid is not held by the hand or otherwise kept under control, runs ahead of his mother and gets hit by a car. Drivers bear their share of responsibility, but mothers should know better too. How do you grow to the child bearing age and not realize that roads are full of assholes in cars?
The kid performed a reasonably impressive backflip but was a little too rough on the landing so he’s only gonna get 7.9 for difficulty, 7.8 for style and 6.2 for landing.
Based on the info I got, the child was 5 year old and they were on a pedestrian crosswalk when they were hit. It’s surprising that of all vehicles, it’s a taxi cab that hit them. You’d think taxi drivers would be particularly vigilant to avoid collisions given that their livelihoods depend on a clean driving record and a car in good condition? I wonder if this cabby’s fare was expected to pay for the ride so far. Leastways he got a first person visual he’ll never forget.
