A bizarre accident earlier today in Taizhou, Jiangsu province gives a possible sneak preview to what will happen if China ever gets flying cars.
Videos circulating around WeChat today show a befuddled man sitting inside a black SUV which has become lodged in a roof as a crowd of onlookers gathers around to figure out just how that happened.
Fortunately, there are cameras everywhere in China. Surveillance footage shows the moment that the driver lost control after accelerating and swerving to avoid hitting a pedicab, jumping off the road, over a ditch and straight into nearby roof. It’s not clear if anyone was home at the time.
In order to rescue the driver, rescuers placed a ladder between the SUV and road for him to climb across. After that, a crane was called in to pick the vehicle out of the roof.
