[LINK] Thought Volvos were supposed to be safe?

Bit hard to see, but it doesn't look like the car braked at all.

It certainly didn't avoid, and it doesn't look like there was anything else
on the road.

Maybe the pedestrian assumed that the car would drive around her - I
certainly make that assumption sometimes, but maybe not with a car
travelling at 70km/hr at night.

It'd be good to see what happened next. Did the car brake after hitting
her, or did it wait until the human woke up?

One thing it highlights is that a human who is supposedly waiting for the
car to make a mistake is in reality not going to be able to react very
fast. It'd also be good to know how many days, weeks or months the chap in
the drivers' seat had been watching and waiting for this to happen.
