Woman almost hit by truck, escape captured on video

One woman in Chile’s northern mining town of Antofagasta had a very lucky escape, after almost being crushed by a gas truck.

The truck was driving along the town’s Avenida Grecia, seen in the video which the truck’s inside camera captured.


The driver is suddenly hit by a stray car at an intersection, crashing into the vehicle from the left-hand side.

Lucky escape

In the video you can see a woman walking along the sidewalk, who has to literally run for her life after nearly being hit by the truck.

Even worse, the woman is almost hit by a stray traffic light, sent flying by the impact of the crash.

The woman has a lucky escape, missing being hit by literally centimeters.

Authorities have been searching for the woman, who also escaped without even a scratch.

A security camera captured another woman during October 2014, almost crushed by a speeding van which failed to stop at a pedestrian crossing.

The woman escaped with light injuries, Chile’s 24 horas reported.

Increased accidents have been linked to more traffic on the town’s roads.
