You don’t see these kinds of things every day, that’s for sure. A woman was caught on dashcam lunging in front of a car in an epic insurance scam fail. In the video, a woman is seen throwing herself at the front of a stopped car in Kowloon, Hong Kong, on March 9, 2018.
The driver said he stopped at the crosswalk when he saw a woman dragging her suitcase on the road. He beeped his horn as she ran towards his vehicle and hurled herself at the front of the car before collapsing onto the road.
The driver said the woman suffered no injuries and suggested her fall was an attempted insurance scam. Police were called but no further action was taken after officers reviewed the car's dashcam footage.
We can’t ever be sure what made her run straight at the vehicle, but the camera doesn’t lie - she was definitely trying to hit the front of it. We just hope that she is alright.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen weird traffic incidents in Asia. There have been instances of people catching a ride behind the bus with their skateboards, sinkholes swallowing up entire vehicles in the middle of the traffic lights, a whole convoy of trucks sliding down an icy mountain road and managing to reach the bottom without a hitch. We are definitely amazed if not a little terrified of their traffic etiquette.
We want to be better...So if you found a mistake in this article, please let us know
