Video from Thailand shows a woman crossing the street while carrying a child in her arms. The woman didn’t look both ways and was struck by a van. Luckily both the mother and daughter survived the accident.
It would appear that the reason the accident was caught on camera by a person standing on the side of the road, is because they were filming the large statue of Buddha.
It was pretty reckless of the woman to just make a dash for it while only checking one direction of traffic, especially since she had the child (her daughter, apparently) with her, but the place doesn’t look like it has any crossings for pedestrians. Luckily, the van wasn’t going too fast and stopped right after hitting them (instead of hitting and running them over) and the witnesses quickly stepped in to help.
Props to Best Gore member MrsPink for the video:
