See reactions to the video:
*** It wasn’t nothing none of them could do to prevent being struck by that truck. It’s crazy how in a blank of an eye everything could unfold like that.
*** WOW that was hard to watch. Sometimes I would just rather not see the images had I know it would be like that I would have scrolled faster. My prayers to all the family and friends of these people.
*** This is so sad.. prayers up for the lost ones and their loved ones
