Pausing In The Middle Of The Street While Talking On Your Phone Can Result In Flying
It’s most definitely not the type of flying you want to do. Watch as a woman crossing the road stops in the middle — maybe because she received a text or call, says the interviewed police officer — and winds up going head over heels when a sedan plows right through her. (The sound effects are the newscast’s.)
In the longer version of this video, embedded after the jump for those in China, the segment makes a seamless transition to another clip of a pedestrian on her phone getting clipped by a car. You might remember that we featured the clip way back when for an episode of Traffic Light.
We do want to point out, finally, that as (possibly) graphic and (probably) hilarious the above clip is (don’t worry, she suffered some broken bones but will live), it doesn’t really compare to this piece of work as part of COW, a British-produced 30-minute drama about a girl who kills four people due to texting while driving. You’ll just have to take my word for it if you don’t like watching explicit depictions of people dying in slow motion. (Youku embed after the jump.)
