Huge storage unit falls off truck braking on Chinese motorway

A storage unit fell off a transport truck after it braked trying to avoid another car changing lane on a motorway in southeastern China.

The CCTV video, filmed in Yingtan City in Jiangxi Province on February 18, shows a white BMW changing lane to the opposite direction and stopping in the middle of a motorway partition.

However, while trying to turn onto the road again, a cargo truck braked to let the BMW pass, causing a storage unit loaded on the truck trailer to come loose and fly off the back of the heavy vehicle.

Fortunately, the truck had an emergency brake allowing it to avoid the car turning onto the road and the highway partition.

No one was injured and police were investigating the case.
