Car narrowly escapes being flattened by shipping container after it falls from truck in China

A car narrowly escaped being flattened by a shipping container after it fell from a truck on a highway in eastern China.

The CCTV video, filmed in the city of Taizhou in Zhejiang Province on November 29, shows an intermodal container dropping from the red truck after it ran over a tyre that fell from a truck in front.

A white car driving past narrowly avoided being flattened by the falling intermodal container.

According to reports, the tyre that fell from the blue truck was a spare, but the truck driver did not know of the incident until the police contacted him.

The red truck driver admitted that he did not fix the intermodal container properly after being asked by police officers.

The case is being investigated, reports said.
