Motorcyclist Makes Amazing Escape From Lorry In China (VIDEO)

A motorcyclist came within inches of being flattened by a rogue 19 tonne container as he waited at a junction in China.

CCTV footage captured the moment the lorry carrying the load took a corner too quickly, sending it tipping over, crushing the front of the motorcyclist's bike as he scrambles backwards.

The driver, a man called Zhu, told China Central Television: "I was driving the lorry downhill, at a speed of about 10 kilometres per hour.

So very, very close...

"As the road winds here, the container tilted toward the right tires, and then the container turned over, followed by the lorry head.

"When I saw the lorry turning over, I hid myself beside the seat. I was lucky, and nothing happened to me."

Nobody was injured in the incident.
