Thanks for that. Looked quite deliberate!

 

However, monk walking in the road with dark orange robe at that time of the morning, well sumthin gonna happen. Better he stayed within the small hard shoulder area, although I think this car wud have hit him, even there.

 

The car did brake, so the driver knew they had hit the monk. Terrible. 😞
