Out-of-control lorry swerves and smashes through embankment on Chinese town road

An out-of-control lorry in eastern China smashed through the embankment and crashed into a number of parked vehicles after it had to emergency brake to avoid a car.

The dramatic CCTV video, filmed in Taizhou City, Zhejiang Province on March 9, shows a lorry losing control and drifting across the embankment after trying to give the way to a car suddenly turning onto the road.

Then the lorry crashes into several vehicles parked on the side of the road before stopping in front of a shop.

Reports say as many as nine vehicles were damaged but no one was injured. Police are investigating the case, reports said.
