Oblivious scooter rider escapes being crushed by out-of-control lorry


A scooter luckily escaped being crushed by an out-of-control lorry after they both ran a red light on a road.

The CCTV video, filmed in Nantong City in eastern Jiangsu Province on November 11, shows a lorry suddenly losing control and tipping over onto the road after it tries to avoid a scooter at an intersection.

The lorry can be seen tilting down to the scooter’s side just seconds after it drives away.

According to reports, the lorry failed to stop in time and rushed through the zebra crossing when the traffic lights turned red.

In order to avoid a scooter also running the red light, the lorry lost control and flipped over.

Since the scooter driver did not notice the oncoming out-of-control truck, he drove away calmly.

Fortunately, no casualties were reported.

The lorry driver has had points deducted from his license and was fined, while no more information about the scooter driver is known, reports said.
