A young girl has cheated death after a 10-foot plunge off a motorway in her dad’s car as the driver claims to have lost control on the wet road surface.
The schoolgirl, who is believed to be between the ages of 12 and 13, was sitting in the front passenger seat of her dad’s BAIC Huansu S2 when it skidded wildly and careered off the Bolong Interchange in the city of Changsha, capital of Central China’s Hunan Province.
The vehicle fell a distance of roughly three metres (10 feet) and dropped vertically onto the road below, crashing front first onto the ground and leaving the SUV’s three occupants injured.

Pictures and video taken in the aftermath of the accident on 5th May show the champagne-coloured BAIC perched vertically against a wall, its airbags deployed and its door open.
The girl, her dad, as well as an unidentified third passenger were taken to hospital for treatment and found to have suffered no life-threatening injuries.
The father, who was not named, said he had lost control of the Huansu S2 – purchased in 2015 – on the wet road surface, causing him to slam into and through the motorway noise barrier.
Investigations into the crash are still ongoing.
