Apparently China doesn’t have stringent traffic laws, or in some places, traffic lights. She was attempting to cross an intersection, on a crosswalk no less, when she was hit. “It just rolled me up on the hood and pushed me forward a little. It didn’t hurt.”
As for the monkey story, Leigh and Carl were posing for a picture when someone happened by with their pet monkey. It immediately ran up her leg, crawling across her face, and stopping on top of her head. “I wasn’t sure of the laws regarding monkeys and self defense, so I just kind of stood there. I didn’t want to end up in a Chinese prison for punching a monkey in the face.” I couldn’t argue with that.
Fortunately for me, the person with the camera kept snapping, and for that I say thank you.
