This is what you might call a close shave. Quite an amazing video that must have been taken from a surveillance camera. A man is walking down the street when a car comes into view almost nailing the guy when it hits the wall and then careens off down the road. Then the driver gets out of the car and runs off leaving the car in the, middle of the road. The pedestrian is OK because of his quick reaction to getting out of the way. Amazing footage.

What is the significance of the included photo? Is that the guy? Did he get a shave right after the accident? ?????????????????

No, I just like posting photos that seem close to the subject of the video. The guy had a close shave, thus the pic.

Dammit! I paid good money for that hit. Where do I get my refund?

Wow! That was amazing! Where did this happen? I’d like to think the police caught up with the driver.

That’s weird. The driver (?) got out of the passenger side before running off. I would’ve guessed that an unwilling passenger was the one who ran off, perhaps after causing the driver to crash.

I watch too many crime shows.

Strange. The driver doesn’t even ask the guy he almost nailed if he’s okay. And boy, that kid was quick to get out of the way. No way could I move that fast.

My first thought was the driver had just stolen the car.

I am thinking in an oriental or European country. I am thinking the driver got out what we call the passenger side, but there it's the drivers side.

I am thinking the same. That's why he hightailed it out of there. And like I said earlier to another, it is probably in a foreign country. Thus the left side driver.

It looked European to me, even before I noticed what side the guy got out. I’m thinking UK somewhere, since I don’t think any other European counties drive on the wrong side.

That video is hilarious. I wonder if it's the same driver as this one:

We have this video on a CD which is set up to play over and over. Put it on when the baby is fussy and impatient for food. He loves it and claps.

I loved Mr. Magoo growing up. We had a Hamster who squinted like he did so we called him Mr. Magoo.

Thanks for the memory...

The car actually did hit the pedestrian on his foot or ankle, and he was limping away as the driver fled. That was weird.

I don't think so. It looked like he stepped on some debris as he returned to the sidewalk, and took a moment to rub it off his shoe.

I just looked at the video again. It seems like the guy may have hit another car and was already damaged.ch.

Good catch.

I don’t walk in the street so don’t drive on the sidewalk!

The kid was hit in the ankle by shrapnel from the front bumper and plastic splash shield that exploded from hitting something just before the vehicle came into frame. It looked like the driver, running back in the direction he came from, intended to confront whatever made him lose control of the car.

Predestination? ... Or the very offer of grace?

I think you are correct.

He definitely hit something or someone just before he came into view. Thus the damage on the front right of his car when the front left hit the wall.

I agree with you. He seemed to twisted his ankle getting out of the way, or as you said stepped on some debris.

Got a migraine so I can’t read what’s on the left of the frame...is that Cyrillic writing or just lines.
