If you're wondering why on earth somebody would cross the road and start looking the other way before even checking the only remaining lane, it probably means this sort of thing won't ever happen to you.
This incident took place last weekend in Novorossiysk, Russia, where these three elderly women demonstrated very little awareness. On top of it all, they were jaywalking.
The lady in front was the most unfortunate as she scraped the side of the van. Thankfully the vehicle didn't hit her with the mirror and didn't run over her feet, which is also a concern in a situation like this.
There's no excuse for how irresponsible the three women were to cross the road the way they did, yet, it would have been nice to see the driver of the van pull over to at least check everyone was alright.
In the end, it all comes down to people surrounded by metal and airbags, and those with absolutely no protection at all. Both sides should watch out for the other.
