Lexus Driver Nearly Causes Two Accidents In The Span Of 10 Seconds

While it’s true that, no matter how good and focused one might be behind the wheel, mistakes are bound happen, keeping a cool head is essential, or else you risk making things worse.

The driver of this Lexus RX was anything but focused, as they run a red light at an intersection, nearly t-boning another car at an intersection. Then, as they backed up, they almost hit a pedestrian who was walking at the zebra crossing. It’s a good thing the latter had the presence of mind to run.

Good thing the pedestrian wasn’t looking at their phone, texting, or just not paying attention for whatever reason – it happens quite often as people assume the crosswalk is a safe space, which might be the case in theory, but not always in practice.

So how come this happened? Well, people tend to get flustered behind the wheel when they realize they have made a mistake. Whomever was driving this Lexus didn’t have the concentration to a. not run a red light, and b. check the mirrors before reversing.

Despite all this, they somehow managed to avoid an accident. Guess lady luck was with them that day.

    I see nearly three accidents.

    The pedestrian was overly casual about walking behind the Lexus, considering what she just saw him/her do.

    That pedestrian should have known the Lexus driver was going to do something stupid like that. My experience is that you never go right behind a driver that pulls too far out. They almost always back up.

  • Axel Cortez

    you never go on the back of a car, you never back up in a situation like that (if you were idiot enough to be in that position embrace your stupidity)

  • When stopped a light, do not stop on the crosswalk, because your blocking it. Stay behind the white line. That Lexus might have a rear backup camera, but the pedestrian should not have walked behind the Lexus

    Sadly, this type of ignorant driving is common for Lexus and Toyota drivers. I tend to be more cautious around these brands.

    • Bash

      lol Interesting point of view. Lame. But interesting. And I have never driven or own any Toyota or Lexus in my life fyi

    • TheBelltower

      Camry, Corolla and Sienna drivers are the most inattentive drivers on the road. There’s a reason that the Camry has a dent named after it.

      • Salih Ahzem

        May be that’s because it’s literally the most sold car in the U.S. for the last 20 years or so? It’s simply too common on the roads…

        • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

          It could also have to do with the fact that these owners hate driving and feel as if their vehicles are an appliance. Driving is a chore that they aren’t good at.

      • Bill Nguyen

        I have a Camry and a clean record! But I also have that dent lol, but only cuz my brother in law bumped my car while he was entering my driveway… :p

      you must own a microwave. it’s common for microwave owners to make broad generalizations about people based on their vehicle choice.

      • cooper

        You’re obviously one of those ignorant toyoder drivers.

  • Honda NSX-R

    I’d say 3 accidents were about to happen

  • Matthew Boyd

    Pedestrians at fault too unfortunately. I wouldn’t trust someone behind the wheel of a 4000 pound piece of metal on four wheels to not do anything else stupid after witnessing the former. Pedestrian didn’t even look and neither did the driver.

  • Ken Lyns

    Typical incompetent Toronto driver…

    • Harlan McCartney

      I was wondering where this was….

  • TheBelltower

    Lexus RX drivers are no better than Camry drivers. Only with better credit.

  • irredeemable A Queer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Lol, the Lexus RX driver has to be a teenage and inexperienced driver who doesn’t watch his or her mirrors nor pay vital attention to something as fun yet dangerous a motor vehicle. Motorists have to drive for themselves and others, as well. The Lexus driver has shown nothing but stupidity.

  • El de Ngaan

    Oh my goodness thanks the woman wasn’t looking down on her smartphone at that time and rushed away from the Lexus’ path the moment it reversed.

  • Infinite1

    The 2018 Douchebag Driver Award goes to…. that guy (or chick), in the Lexus SUV.

  • Philip George

    That driver had no time to use any of the mirrors placed on that car for safety. Side mirrors would have helped for change of lanes, rear view mirror would have been helpful reversing to see pedestrian behind. Must be some dumbo too busy live-streaming on facebook or instagram whilst driving.

  • Manny Cader

    I also see nearly 3 accidents, but feel the other driver with dash cam unwittingly caused the following two near misses, Instead of horning to warn the other driver of his presence, he was overly aggressive and alarmed the Lexus driver producing a flight or freeze response, he has a particularly loud horn. He was a player in the series of events as he cut into the outside lane for no reason as there was nothing in front of him. Also he must be aware that he is moving into the other driver’s blind spot, that requires caution. He could’ve in fact moved back over to the inner lane as it was empty. Instead he chose to sit on his horn causing alarm and he’s posting this video, in attempt to highlight the other driver’s lack of competence. But he is also lacking awareness and incompetent.
