Dashcam video has surfaced of a near-miss at a Metro Vancouver intersection that could have resulted in serious injuries.
The footage begins by showing the driver’s perspective of River Road in Richmond. As the driver makes their way down the street, they slow to a stop at the intersection of Cambie Road.
Coming from the opposite direction, a number of cars have stopped at the intersection to allow two people to cross. The pedestrians begin to cross the street in the designated crosswalk when a car makes a quick left turn through the intersection. The two people jump back as the car comes to an abrupt stop, narrowly missing them.
Pertam posted the video on Reddit, captioning “Stay safe out there.”
A number of commenters remarked that the sun could have obscured the driver’s vision, but a number of others said that they were simply driving quickly and not paying attention.
