Drag racing E92 M3 hits pedestrian.

This happen in Bucharest. Warning some people may find this disturbing as CCTV footage captures the hit.

Probably not, at 120 km/h... ouch

But he (pedestrian) was crossing on a red light, so... they're both at fault...

1. Pedestrians always have the right of way.

2. The M3 driver had at least 5 or 6 seconds to stop.

3. The M3 driver was racing.

The fact the pedestrian was jaywalking matters, but it's unimportant next to these other things. Especially #2 and #3.

Do you seriously expect to not go to jail if you hit a pedestrian while street racing because they're jaywalking? That is one heck of an affirmative defense.

It's extremely hard to judge how fast something is coming at you head-on. Not really his fault.....people cross at red lights all the time.
