There are close calls and then there are REALLY close calls. This video fits the latter category.

The video, posted on YouTube by user Mustafa Er, shows a car with a dashboard camera stopped at stop light as two pedestrians begin to cross the intersection.

Just moments later, it appears that an oncoming car goes through a stop light and crashes into a car entering the intersection.

The force of the crash pushes both cars toward the women crossing the street. One woman immediately turns and runs to escape the crash. The other woman freezes, and quickly backpedals, narrowly avoiding getting hit.
