Homeless man has lucky escape as out of control driver crashes

Updated: 

A homeless man had a very lucky escape after an out of control car ploughed into the dumpster he was standing near.

The footage shows a homeless man walking along a street with a small trolley trailing behind him with his worldly goods in it.


He stands next to a dumpster for a few moments. There is a car waiting to turn out of a space next to it.

At the top of the screen you suddenly see a silver car approaching which doesn't appear to slow down for the bend, instead driving straight on and mounting the pavement.

It narrowly misses the man and ploughs head on into the trolley and a metal signpost.

The homeless man also has a dog, which senses that something is wrong and darts away from the impending crash.

Luckily nobody was injured in the incident.
