Yet another insane video has hit the Chinese internet, reminding us to always be alert on the road, especially when standing in the middle of it..
In the video, a sanitation worker is seen sweeping up in the middle of the street and then standing to one side as traffic approaches. Suddenly, she realizes, nearly too late, that a dump truck is rumbling straight toward her.
Fortunately, the worker is able to stumble away just far enough to avoid being struck head on. The truck clips her as it goes by, sending her sprawling to the pavement, and then it too flips over in a dramatic hail of dust.
According to Sina, the truck driver said that there was a small car in the right turn lane, forcing him into the middle lane, where he suddenly saw the sanition worker standing in the road. He turned the wheel to try to avoid hitting her, causing the whole truck to roll over into the intersection.
The incident took place at around 3 p.m. on Saturday in Chuzhou city, Anhui province. The sanitation worker somehow got away with just a bruised left foot and no other major injuries.
The police said that the truck driver was at fault for the accident because he had not reduced his speed approaching the intersection.
