A peruvian policewoman acting as an escort for a prison van lived through this. Very lucky.

Yeah saw that on the TV news last night and thought the same thing. How the hell do you NOT see that thing? She never even looked left! Not only that but but at least for the few seconds that we see the truck it doesn't look like it slowed down one bit either. Even while and after it hit her. Damn....watch out for those Peruvian truck drivers huh?

trucks take forever to stop, and slamming the brakes could mean jack-knifing and causing a bigger accident and more casualties.

She's lucky the trailer wheels missed her head by a few cm's...
