This video shows an unlucky scooter rider being knocked to the ground by a runaway lorry wheel moments before the same wheel rolls back and floors him a second time.

The bizarre accident was shared to social media on 23rd September by a social media user Mr Dai, 33, who is from the city of Ningbo in East China’s Zhejiang Province.

The footage shows the rider crashing off his scooter inside Changhong Tunnel, which is built under the Yongjiang River, when the double lorry wheels roll into him from behind.

It is unclear where the wheels came from, but a heavy goods vehicle enters the frame moments later and drives right past the victim, who picks up his scooter and walks it back onto the nearby pavement

As the dazed scooter rider dusts himself off and several vehicles drive past him without stopping, the double lorry wheels can be seen rolling back down the same tunnel road into traffic.

Approaching cars manage to swerve and avoid the set of wheels, which appear to be rolling down a sloped road, before they crash into the same victim a second time, hitting him from behind and sending him falling to the ground.

The heavy wheels finally fall over and stop in front of other cars as the video ends, with the lorry driver who lost the wheel having seemingly driven off without a clue.

The scooter rider is not believed to have been harmed.

Mr Dai revealed that scooters are not allowed in the Changhong Tunnel, and that Ningbo authorities had already investigating the accident.
