Edit: She's fine - the bus driver swerved so there's no gore. It's safe to watch. Just a terrifying close call.

 

I just wanted to talk about it with you guys because it's been on my mind since yesterday. I live about a 5 min walk from the bridge so I've been squinting at suspicious joggers all day. It did happen in May but they've just released the footage.

 

No, she didn't try to trip him. Her leg only flies out when he hits her so we're not getting into that. Trust me, I've watched this too many times and not once does her leg go out to trip him. It only goes out after he's hit her. The tripping thing is just a trick of the eyes because of the quality.

 

 It looks to me like he veers toward her intentionally because it's like he almost slows a bit after the first guy. And thennnn pushes her. Thankfully the bus driver had great reflexes because he could have 1) easily glanced away at the time and 2) could have hit another car because of the asshole jogger.

 

My favourite take on the whole thing is that it was an attempted hit. I don't actually believe it was, but I just like the theory haha

I just don't really understand why someone would do something like this. It's really just so shitty.

I read about it on the news.

It's clear he went towards her to push her, but I just don't understand why. 

 

We can't see her face before it happens, did she shout/ say something to him to piss him off? 

Still wouldn't explain/ justify his behavior. 

 

I hope they catch him. This could have ended very badly. And clearly he is not in control of his emotions and dangerous to the community/ city.

Jesus. I'm gonna go ahead and say I don't think there's anything she could have done to justify being pushed in front of a bus..

Shit. I'm glad she's ok. 

 

Things like these really make me paranoid whenever I go outside for a walk.

@Emily here's some good news, they arrested the guy.

Just wow! There's a new twist to the story, apparently the guy was running the other side of the bridge about 15 minutes later, and the woman tried to talk to him, but he didn't acknowledge her.

Thank you, saw it a while ago though :p 

 

That's not a new twist either. That was included in the original story.

Bus driver is the mvp, quick reaction time to swerve and didn't panic slam into the car next to it either. Good shit.

If you're going to push someone into traffic, at least make sure the bus hits them.

He's adamant he was in the US at the time of the incident.

 

This is why I don't go south of the river. Nothing good comes of it.

@Ali

Wow, he better prove that then. Next he's going to say it was his evil twin .  This story really just seems to be getting weirder.
