Saw a girl hit by a car...
I saw someone getting hit by a car for the first time(*) in person this lunchtime.
I was waiting for the bus infront which was picking up/setting down passengers when a girl of about 16ish gets out, and runs behind the bus right infront of my car.
There was a bus on the other side of the road that she was running for and without stopping to look for cars on the other side of the road, she carried on running.
I saw an old Lexus coming at around 35 mph and the girl ran right into the road where the Lexus hits her.
I saw her fly through the air and roll a couple of times and I jumped out to see if she was OK. She stood up without a scratch and proceeded to try and board the bus!
The bus driver wouldn't let her on and other passengers waiting at the bus stop who also witnessed it insisted that she sit down and for someone to take her to the hospital (or call an ambulance).
Luckily she wasn't hurt, she'll probably be in shock and be hurting all over later on...
It made me realise that these things don't only happen on TV or on the news. Thank you for reading.
Stay safe, it only takes a moment... :sorry:
(*) Not counting the time that I myself was hit by a car when I was 14 and had my fractured bone sticking out of my ankle... :faint:
