Out of control cement tanker narrowly misses man crossing road in China

An out of control cement tanker narrowly missed a man crossing a road in southern China.

The terrifying video, shot in Beihai city in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on August 4, shows a man in a blue shirt trying to cross a road when an out of control cement tanker pushed a car towards to him.

After the man noticed it, he immediately ran away to try to avoid the vehicles and fell to the ground doing so.

Seven vehicles were damaged to different extents and one passenger in a car suffered minor injuries.

According to local police, the incident was caused by the brake failure on the cement tanker and the misoperation of the driver.

The cement tanker driver was blamed for the incident and the damages cost around 350,000 yuan (£41,000).
