Watch this Ningbo trucker barely escape death as he slams on the brakes, causing two colossal concrete piles to plow through the cabin and out the front windshield.
The driver, surnamed Zhang, was driving a truck loaded with more than ten 2/3-ton concrete piles to a construction site in Ningbo’s Yinzhou District. However, since the piles were not tied up tightly and the truck was moving at a high speed, some of the concrete piles loosened and fell onto the road when the driver took a hairpin turn. Zhang stepped on the brake pedal, causing two concrete piles to come loose and smash through the cabin and out the windshield, grazing Zhang. A couple centimeters to the left and he might have met the same fate as his payload.
Zhang said he was lucky the piles penetrated through the right side and not the left where the driver’s seat was. Said Zhang, “At that time, those piles directly grazed my arm. I could have lost my life without that little distance,” he said.
The whole front of the truck was destroyed in the accident.
