Video: SUV flies over hedge, barely misses pedestrian in mall parking lot

Richmond News


A video is circulating on social media that shows a white SUV hitting another vehicle, mounting the curb, bursting through some bushes and narrowly avoiding a pedestrian in Richmond.

Alan Ho, manager of the Yaohan Centre, said it happened in his mall’s parking lot at around 8:50 a.m. Thursday morning.

Ho is just glad that nobody was badly hurt.

“It was lucky because it was early in the morning,” he said.

Billy Tsang, a Richmond resident who shared the video on Facebook, said watching it frightens him.

“As a father this really scares me, because we go to Yaohan quite often,” he said.

He added that reckless driving is “becoming a regularity” in Richmond, and hopes city council takes steps to address the issue.

Ho, the mall manager, has a message for drivers coming into the Yaohan parking lot:

“Just be careful.”
