Passerby runs away seconds before warehouse collapses in dramatic crash

Shocking moment shows a lucky passerby escaping death after an out-of-control transport lorry smashed into a firework warehouse, causing it to collapse.

Dash-cam video, filmed in Changsha City in southern Hunan Province on November 22, shows a lorry, trying to avoid a scooter, speeding into a warehouse next to a woman walking past on the pavement.

A scooter with three people on it moves beside the lorry when it plunges into the house, and a woman runs away just seconds before the warehouse collapses due to the crash.

Three people on the scooter and one person in the lorry had injuries and were sent to hospital for treatment.

Fortunately, the fireworks in the warehouse did not explode.
