Would "from in front" work?

"I was corssing the street when the car coming from in front almost slammed into me."

    ‘Coming from in front’ isn’t colloquial in this context. I would say ‘Coming towards me’.

    If you are crossing the street and a car is coming toward you like the wind then it's driving from curb to curb, across traffic lanes. That would be a very unusual situation.

    With "curb to curb across traffic lanes", what do you mean?

    Encompassing the whole path beyond the road, including the pedestrian's path (curb) on both sides so that the car engulfs the whole passage?

    In the picture, the light blue circle is a vehicle.
