A motorcyclist in China had a breathtakingly narrow escape from a truck rollover accident in east China's Nantong City, Jiangsu Province. CCTV footage shows a truck overloaded with gravel running a red light at a high speed toward a motorcyclist crossing the road.

To avoid the cyclist, the truck driver tried to steer the vehicle to the left only to overturn to its right side, with the dirt scattered all over the road. Fortunately the bicycle rider narrowly escaped from being buried and no one was injured in the accident on 7 October.

A traffic policemen Liu Wei said: "According to the monitoring footage, the truck and the bicycle were very close to each other. The dirt in the truck nearly buried the bicycle. It was very dangerous."
