I am assuming everyone in that video is acting on instinct.....that none of them are really consciously deciding their actions. It is an interesting video because what we see is the primitive parts of the brain working. This is fast thinking at work.

She flees before the man, but when she realizes the man isn't with her, her instinct is to turn back and cross into harms way to be with the man. She then moves behind the man like he is going to protect her.

I also find it interesting that she instinctively grabbed her coffee.

I disagree with your analysis.

Looking at the gif, both the man and the woman appear to begin movement at virtually the same time; the male lingering in his position to gather his laptop.

The pace at which the woman turns and moves toward the male after they had both retreated suggests a miscalculation; she moves at a walk until impact, then bolts, this leads me to believe that her second move was not instinctual; had it been, she would have moved with far greater urgency to join with the male. As for moving behind the male, I would suggest that is an instinctive reaction; not one to get behind the male, but to get as far from the hazard (to which she had 'close' contact) as possible.

As for the coffee, it is interesting, the man also moved to save his coffee and laptop, costing him time to get away. I would suggest that that is an instinctive reaction; to preserve resources and investment, both coffee and laptop represent both.

I have not made any conclusions yet. If I understood the woman's actions they would not be interesting to me

The coffee doesn't perplex me that much.....I still find it interesting though. In the mind the coffee is a comestible. The action reminds me of a animal grabbing a last bit of meat off a kill just before being run off by a larger animal who then steals the prize.

There is no sound. We have no idea what may have been said.

I think we can guess.

It started with him saying "WTF?!?!?" and ended at home (assuming that was any relation between the man and woman seated at the window ... which is unclear) with ...
"I thought you loved me"
"Huh?"
"Nothing"
"I don't understand what you meant"
"It's OK"
"No really. Why did you say that?"
"Well, I if you have to ask, then ..."
< prolonged silence >
"Is everything alright? Are you OK?"
"I'm fine"

RE: This woman's behavior fascinates me.
I disagree with that entire interpretation. I see them both observing that they have enough time to comfortably grab their stuff and move before impact, so they get their coffee and computer, and walk away. He walks directly into the store, directly away from the threat. She does not, choosing at first to cover behind the non-glass, solid part of the wall. A moment later, she notices he went deeper into the store and thinks, "Yeah that's probably better than standing by the front wall", and moves to follow his better idea.

It is clear that the actual impact, as she passes by the corner of the bar, takes her completely by surprise, so she had obviously lost track of the timing of the oncoming bus, and the fright speeds her flight to the back of the store. At the end of the video, she runs past the man in the direction of the rear of the store, NOT stopping for or turning toward him (as she would if she considered him to be "man-shelter"). The fact that he is there at that point is irrelevant.

You've projected sexist interpretations into a scenario where none are warranted.

The only thing interesting is why the hell the bus driver, or whatever it is, lost control of the vehicle.

The girl has a cute little figure and the guy looks like he might be fairly intelligent. He points to the impending collision. I wonder if they had sex that night to celebrate their living through the incident. I hope so!

DJL....you UK people with your "lorries". So funny.
