Video shows Toronto pedestrian walking into firetruck

Always look both ways before you cross the street. That's just one of the things many of us gleaned in kindergarten, right along with stranger danger, the golden rule, and never to eat yellow snow. But one local pedestrian learned their lesson the hard way.

As a video uploaded to the Toronto Roadcams Dash Cam Videos YouTube channel shows, a person crossing the street at St. Clair Avenue West and Caledonia Road walked right into a firetruck, a firetruck that was blaring its siren.

Apparently the pedestrian was wearing headphones, but this leads us to questions like, just how loud was their music?

Clearly, pedestrian safety is a huge issue in Toronto right now and as anyone who walks around the city knows, drivers need to be vigilant - the onus isn't only on those traveling by foot. But videos like this one do nothing to help beat stereotypes of distracted walkers who are constantly moving around while staring at their phones or oblivious to the world around them.
