This young woman, distracted by her cell phone, has run it over by a concrete mixer while crossing a busy street during a traffic jam.
The incident was filmed by a CCTV camera on Ivan Sirko Street in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev.
The images show the woman crossing between cars in a traffic jam while talking on her phone.
The woman, in the photo, is engrossed in a cell phone conversation as she traverses heavy traffic in Ukraine
By walking so close to the truck, she is in the driver’s blind spot and cannot be seen
The driver is completely oblivious to the woman as she rolls into a ball under his truck
She suddenly stops in front of a concrete mixer, just as the driver, who apparently cannot see the woman from his elevated position behind the wheel, moves forward in the traffic jam.
The front of the truck knocks the woman to the ground and she apparently rolls into a ball as the truck moves slowly forward.
The young woman was reportedly taken to hospital with multiple injuries, but there are no further updates on her condition or the specific injuries she suffered during the incident.
Local police said the woman should not have used a cell phone when crossing the road because she was distracted.
Focus Ukraine, a Kennan Institute blog, states, “Pedestrians are prohibited from crossing the road outside a designated intersection if there is a dividing lane or if the road has four or more lanes for traffic in both directions.”
The investigation is ongoing.
