Mumbai: 23 August 2020


A man walking on the road in the small town of Chavara in the South Indian state of Kerala is thankful to his lucky stars as a speeding goods vehicle missed him by just inches.


The whole incident, captured on the CCTV of a shop in the vicinity, has gone viral on social media.


The man identified as Sri Kumar, a construction worker, was walking to work on the side of National Highway 66 near Thattassery Junction in the town on August 21 morning. There were very few vehicles coming from the opposite end. After a motorcyclist, a mini-truck passes by when suddenly from Sri Kumar’s behind a goods van speeds off the road missing him by a whisker.


A dazed Sri Kumar turns back and runs, before stopping to look at the van which has by now sped off. The speeding vehicle had in fact skid off the road to avoid hitting Sri Kumar, and rushed off after brushing past a tree. Meanwhile the driver of a truck coming from the opposite direction also looks back to see if everything is alright with the van.


Sri Kumar waits for a few seconds, presumably thanking his stars, before walking back clutching his bag.


“The van whizzed past me by like a lightning strike, and before I could realise it, the van sped away. For a moment I didn’t know what to do. But I am grateful to God for being alive today,” said Sri Kumar.


“As nothing happened to the pedestrian, no police complaint was lodged with us,” said Chavara police station Assistant Inspector J Shibu.
