We have seen a lot of accidents over the years, but never one quite like this.
Surveillance video at a busy intersection in Xingtai shows the moment when three vehicles are suddenly jerked back simultaneously, even causing one van to levitate and flip completely over. The weird thing? None of the vehicles ever touched each other. Even stranger, one pedestrian could not have been more unfazed by the whole thing.
Seriously, just watch:
Yup, so it turns out that the culprit wasn’t a powerful ghost with road rage or an impatient pedestrian with psychic powers, but merely a mislaid road maintenance cable that happened to get tangled up in the spinning sweepers of a passing sanitation vehicle at just the wrong time, causing it to be lifted up, snagging the three vehicles. But hey, you believe what you want to believe.
