Chinese pedestrian narrowly avoids being hit by truck smashing into shop

A pedestrian luckily avoided being hit by a truck smashing into a shop behind him in southwestern China.

The terrifying CCTV video, filmed in the city of Zhaotong in Yunnan Province on September 15, shows a truck smashing into a closed shop to force itself to stop seconds after a man walking past.

According to reports, the driver realized that he could not stop the overloaded truck after rain left the road slippery, so he crashed it into a closed shop to force it to stop.

Fortunately, no one was injured. The truck driver was blamed for the incident and the case is under further investigation.

The video was provided by local media with permission.
