Scary Phoenix pedestrian accident caught on video

An Arizona pedestrian collision involving a mother and child is been caught on videotape and posted on the ABC news website (click on the ABC link to view accident). Luckily, no one was seriously injured.

The tape shows a mother pushing a child in a stroller within a marked crosswalk. As traffic starts to move the pedestrians are still crossing, and a large SUV hits and drags the mother and child. Somehow they only suffered a few scrapes, and when you watch the video it’s hard to believe they were not seriously injured.

Initially investigating Phoenix police officers ticketed the SUV driver for failure to yield, but later reportedly withdrew the citation after reviewing the video,stating that the driver’s vision was blocked by a recreational vehicle in the left turn lane.

When and where the Phoenix SUV vs. pedestrian accident occurred was not reported.
