Probably wouldn't need luck if he just picked a better place to cross the street.
We know that we say this a lot, but Russian dash cams are the greatest thing to happen to the internet since porn. Admittedly making them a very distant second. The spectacular video you'll see here (it's a dash cam, not porn, just to clear that up) shows a Nissan Qashqai taking a left turn much too close to a dump truck coming the other way. The truck, which was possibly full, couldn't slow down in time and hits the Nissan.
The way the two vehicles narrowly miss the pedestrian who has chosen a particularly bad place to cross the street really needs to be seen to be believed.
