Scooter driver narrowly escapes being run over by truck

A scooter driver narrowly escaped death after being trapped under the front end of a moving truck in southern China.

The dramatic CCTV video, filmed in Hechi City in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on November 8, shows a truck knocking down a scooter and dragging the driver with it forward for several metres, when it turns a corner.

The driver can be seen rolling away to avoid being run over by the front wheel of the truck and getting back on his feet before it stops. Fortunately, the scooter driver only suffered minor scratches.
