While I agree with most of what has been written, tailgating somebody is not a "mistake". It is a deliberate choice and act. If the driver had chosen to leave a safe distance to the vulnerable person in front of her, the incident (if it was not an intentional hit) wouldn't have happened. Given the driver had been jumping the queue down the left according to locals who know the road, I'd say there was a lot of impatience involved.
