This is the moment a speeding woman driver crashes into a service area and smashes a parked car out of the way leaving her own vehicle stopped on the same spot.
The accident happened in the city of Taizhou in China’s eastern Zhejiang Province as the woman, surnamed Cai, attempted to pull into the Shenxianju Service Area.
Footage from the Zhuji-Yongjia Expressway shows her silver Audi borrowed from a work pal attempting to turn into the service area car park but travelling too fast.
She understeers and slams right into the back of a black Buick saloon, which was fortunately not occupied at the time.
The dramatic crash, which ruins the front of the Audi, also startled nearby motorists and passengers, who duck for cover.
The authorities, who questioned Cai about why she turned into the service area at such speed, were told: “I think I stepped on the accelerator pedal.”
No one was injured during the accident, police said.
Cai revealed the Audi belonged to a colleague, and that she was driving home for ‘chunyun’, also known as the Spring Festival travel season during which Chinese New Year takes place.
Authorities say Cai will be held fully liable for the crash.
