This viral video with nearly three million views shows a jilted hubby ploughing into his estranged wife and sending her flying outside a government office moments before they were set to divorce.
The incident is believed to have been captured by a staff member in the office of the Yongnian District Civil Affairs Bureau, which is in the city of Handan in North China’s Hebei Province.
The couple, whose names have been withheld by the police, had showed up at the government office together in order to file for divorce on 14th June.

However, an argument broke out in the car park outside the office, leading to the husband threatening to drive away.
The video filmed from one of the office windows shows the hubby reversing his white SUV away from the Civil Affairs Bureau, with his wife appearing and trying to call him back inside.
However, the husband then does the unexpected by driving straight into his spouse, ramming the woman head-on and sending her flying backwards on the pavement in front of the government building.
The Yongnian District Public Security Bureau confirmed in a statement on 16th June that the man and woman involved were indeed a married couple who were preparing to file for divorce at the office.
The wife was taken to hospital for treatment and is not in any life-threatening condition and has refused to allow police to conduct a formal evaluation of her condition which will be needed if the man is to be formally charged.
Both husband and wife have requested that they be allowed to settle the matter amongst themselves, but the police say they are still carrying out their own investigation.
