Pedestrian has lucky escape with a van


A woman has been caught on dash cam narrowly avoiding being run over by a speeding van as she failed to look when crossing the road.

The video was captured in Russia and shows a car sat in traffic with its dash cam running. A man and woman can be heard having a discussion in Russian when a group of three women approach from the right side.

The fear and panic is slowly heard in the occupant's voices as the women begin to cross the road without realising that it's a three-lane highway. They fail to look left, only looking right as they cross when suddenly a van appears.

As the van hits the brakes a woman is slightly ahead of her friends and is brushed by the vehicle before falling back.

Slightly shaken the woman seems to brush herself down and carries on crossing the road with the other women.
