Dashcam footage of semi-truck narrowly missing kids is heart-stopping
A group of school children crossing the road in Norway learned an important lesson in pedestrian safety recently.
A vehicle equipped with a dashcam was following a bus. At one point the bus pulls over and a few kids get off, and head to the rear of the bus. Instead of waiting for the bus to leave to get a clear view of oncoming traffic, a few of the kids decide to cross blindly.
As the kids enter the roadway a semi-truck can be seen barreling down the road. The driver with the dashcam tries to warn everyone by laying on their horn, but it’s too late for one kid, who commits to crossing the street.
Somehow, the truck driver manages to stop with just inches to spare.
