After pushing and shoving each other, the boyfriend walks off while the woman, identified as Ms. He, goes to stand on her own on the zebra crossing in the middle of the road.
After a period of defiantly standing with her back to her boyfriend, she then starts to walk towards him.
However, the lights have changed and oncoming cars turn into the road where she is crossing.
A taxi hits the woman and she is sent flying. The boyfriend is seen coming over and he appears to remonstrate with the cabbie.
According to local media, the woman stood in the road to see if her boyfriend would come back for her.
Reports also said that she had been drinking alcohol before the accident.
An ambulance was called after the collision and the boyfriend reportedly argued with the taxi driver and kicked his cab until they arrived.
Meanwhile, Ms. He was transferred to a nearby hospital.
As the taxi driver broke hard before hitting the woman, she is not badly hurt, according to reports.
It is unclear whether the local authorities are investigating the accident.
