This is the moment a car is dragged through a motorway tunnel after rear-ending a lorry whose clueless driver did not notice for another 2 miles.
The accident happened on the Quanzhou-Nanning Expressway over the county of Nindu, in East China’s Jiangxi Province, on 14th February.
The driver of the white saloon car was driving over the 100 kph (62 mph) speed limit. He crashed into the back of the lorry while doing 118 kph (73 mph), police said.
His vehicle became lodged in the undercarriage of the lorry, which continued to drive through Tongluoshan Second Tunnel for over 3 kilometres (1.8 miles).
The lorry driver, whose name has not been given, told investigators: “Outside the tunnel, I felt my vehicle shake, but I didn’t notice anything unusual when checking my mirrors, so I kept driving.
“I stopped when another motorist kept honking at me.”
According to Nindu County police, the salon driver and his passenger in the back seat both suffered minor injuries during the accident.
They received treatment at a local hospital and have already been discharged.
The incident was still being investigated at the time of writing.
