One-half second exposure should work for a subject with a brisk walking pace. Time the shutter opening with the planting of the foot on the ground. Dark clothing and a light background will complete the effect.
Looking again, I think this was one shot. The top-down view shortened pedestrian's form. Appears to be wearing suede jacket, swinging arms, possibly holding a paper. Some dark-ish collar or scarf. Grey hair.
This may take some staging to re-create what originally was a planned, fortunate shot.
