Meanwhile, the speeding car keeps on driving away.
In the next scene, the dazed woman is seen with bloody oozing out of her mouth while being checked by the man she was apparently crossing the street with.
Paramedics then strap both her legs and place her in an ambulance on a stretcher.
According to local media, the driver fled the scene and has yet to be tracked down by the authorities.
The victim, whose name has not been revealed, was taken to a nearby hospital with injuries to her face and legs.
The Mexican Secretariat of Public Security has advised citizens to respect all road signs as well as dedicated lanes and pedestrian crossings.
The investigation is ongoing.
