Google Maps Street View users alarmed as car 'steamrolls' young boy in middle of road
Google Maps Street View often captures people as they go about their daily lives. Most of the time, these folk are snapped doing mundane activities of little interest to the viewer. However, every now and again some real oddities appear.
It would appear a ball game is underway, with one child in the foreground holding onto the ball.

Five boys in total can be seen in the wake of the Google car.

However, at the bottom of the frame, a pair of legs can be seen.

They look to have been flattened.

DON’T MISS

Has the Street View run over the boy?

The Reddit user who posted the photo seemed to think so.

They captioned the snap: “Just straight up steamrolled ’em.”

Yet is there more to the story than meets the eye?

This is far from the first time a shot has made it look as though Google car has been involved in an accident.

A photo taken in Japan appeared to show a motorbike collision caused by the Street View vehicle.

However, Google has since responded to explain what actually is being shown in the picture, clarifying the rider came off their bike at a sharp bend while Google was taking a collection of a road in Japan in 2013.

The Street View driver saw it happen and got out to make sure the rider was fine, which, fortunately, he was.
