This is the moment a man and a woman on a collision course while driving on narrow rice paddy roads fail to slow down and slam right into one another.

The dramatic accident happened at the junction of Yongmei Road and Shunhe Road in the township of Zhuangwei in Taiwan’s eastern Yilan County.

Dashcam footage shows a red car driven by female motorist surnamed Huang, 19, travelling along Shunhe Road when her male counterpart in a blue saloon comes into view.

The blue car, driven by Cheng, 28, travels at a considerably faster speed but neither car appears to slow down as they meet at the crossroads.

Cheng crashes into the red car and sends it spinning away with a damaged engine, while the blue saloon careers off-road and ends up in a nearby rice paddy.

Authorities say both drivers suffered non-life-threatening injuries, including bruising and broken bones.

A female passenger in Huang’s red car escaped with injuries to her foot.

Both motorists have been cleared by drink-driving, but the police are still investigating the case.
