Riding a two-wheeler in traffic jams has many advantages, but there are also disadvantages. The small size of a scooter multiplies the risk of not being seen and this woman has experienced it.
In wanting to sneak between cars in traffic jams, the driver of this scooter omitted an important detail. With its small size, heavyweights have more difficulty seeing it. Their blind spots are greater and things can go wrong very quickly.
This is what is happening in this video captured by a witness to the scene, located a few meters from the incident. We can then see the scooter pass in front of a stationary truck. But when it’s time to sneak in, traffic picks up and the huge dump truck moves forward without seeing the two-wheeler.
Result, the scooter is literally hit by the truck before going underneath. Such an accident seems fatal, but no, a few seconds later, the scooter driver emerges unscathed.

Miraculously, the young woman is not injured. Probably still in shock, of course, but when the truck leaves, she is in good health.
As for his scooter, that’s another story unfortunately, but what really matters here is that there are no serious injuries to report. And yet, given the situation, it was not a foregone conclusion.
