This is the moment a Chevrolet saloon careers off a road into pedestrians on the pavement and ends up on its roof after one of its tyres explodes.
The accident happened in the city of Tai’an in East China’s Shandong Province, where police confirmed three people have died and one remains injured.
Footage of the crash shows the white Chevrolet appearing to lose control after the tyre burst, causing the saloon to veer sideways off the road and into the pavement.
It narrowly avoids a lorry coming the other way and crashes into a group of people before overturning in a roadside car park.
Investigators said two male and two female pedestrians were injured during the crash.
They were taken to Tai’an Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine for treatment following the crash at roughly 6:20pm local time on 29th April.
However, three were already without vital signs and were declared dead, while a fourth remains in critical condition.
Tai’an police have yet to reveal the driver’s name, age and gender, and did not say whether they were detained after the accident, which is still under investigation.
The victims were also yet to be named at the time of writing.
