As they reach the second half of the crossing, a white Toyota is seen approaching with no signs of slowing down despite the red light.

He comes within inches of the boy on the bike before coming to a sudden stop.

The women are seen gesturing at the driver who later reverses his vehicle to go behind the crossing.

Netizens have slammed the driver for his reckless driving and almost causing an accident.
