This is what happens when pedestrians that aren't paying attention encounter a driver that also isn't paying attention.  We all see it all the time,  Bad scene for all involved, but not surprising at all.

Vehicles with red plate must stay in the province which the car is registered and be able to drive that vehicule during day time in that province only.
