    Motorcyclist Narrowly Escapes Overturning Truck in China


    by NTDTelevision

    A lucky escape for this Chinese motorcyclist who saw a heavy truck overturn before his very eyes and dismounted just in the nick of time.

    The incident, caught on a traffic camera, happened on January 22 in the eastern province of Zhejiang.

    The truck's driver reportedly lost control while making a sharp turn at an intersection on a national highway.

    "I was driving the truck downhill at about 10 kilometers per hour. The road gets very windy around here and the back compartment of the truck tilted towards the right side and then flipped over, so then the front of the truck had to follow."

    State media reported that no one was hurt in the accident.

    The quick-thinking motorcyclist was clearly paying attention to the truck. He got off just before the truck's container grinded his motorcycle across the street.

    Road safety is a big concern in China. In 2010, Chinese police officially recorded more than 200,000 road accidents that lead to deaths or injuries. The number of fatalities were over 65,000.
