A truck lost control on a highway in Yuncheng city, Shanxi Province, leaving a grim scene of more than 30 tons of watermelon splattered across the road.
Security footage shows the truck swerving off the highway, flying onto an open field and hitting a few safety rails. Watermelons tumbled out of the truck as it continued to cruise down the road, crushing the delicious fruits along the way.
The vehicle finally came to a stop after crashing into a service station. Because it happened at 6:00 a.m, no one was around to be injured or to loot any undamaged watermelon. Sadly, the truck’s entire cargo was wasted.
The driver told the police that the vehicle’s brakes had stopped working.
