Surely, it should be the urinating woman who failed to notice the slow moving fucking steam roller lumbering toward her??

R.I.P and all, but I've got that scene from the Austin Powers movie in my head now.

1. The dude driving the roller appears to be asleep. Better than on the phone.. I guess.
2. The deceased woman appears to be resting in the shade, not taking a leak.
3. Someone within 10m of the woman took this photo and did nothing.

Impossible to tell if the roller is in motion when the photo was taken. I fucking hope it wasn't and some cunt didn't just film her being crushed to death.

Given that the shade she is resting in is being cast by the roller; perhaps both the the operator and she had a nap.

Then operator wakes up, starts up and rolls over her.

Makes way more sense than the OP.

The local women generally piss behind screening shrubbery, rather than right in front of everyone
