This is the moment a security guard jumps out the way at the last second as a bungling pensioner crashes his SUV up some steps and through the front door of a bank.

The male driver, who has not been named, can be seen pulling into a roadside parking spot outside the Agricultural Bank of China in Zhangzhou, which is in China’s southernmost island province of Hainan.

As the 66-year-old drives into the parking spot, the security guard motions for the pensioner to stop, but the white SUV suddenly speeds forwards towards him.

The alert guard jumps out the way as the SUV is driven up the concrete steps, slamming into the bank’s glass door, breaking it off its hinges in the process.

The panicking pensioner keeps his foot on the accelerator pedal, with the video showing the front wheels still spinning as it ends.

Local authorities have revealed the pensioner likely mistook his accelerator for the brake when trying to park his car.

The branch of the Agricultural Bank of China is still estimating the damages caused during the accident.

No one was injured during the incident.
