This is the moment a woman driver falls asleep at the wheel and crashes into a toll station before flipping her Audi while a child is in the car.
The dramatic crash on the Yiwu-Dongyang Expressway was captured by traffic cameras on 30th August.
The woman headed for the city of Dongyang, which is in Zhejiang Province in East China, can be seen approaching Niansanli Toll Station when she slams the front of her Audi into a crash cushion.
The plastic vat of water explodes as her white SUV rolls twice before landing back on its chassis.
Images taken in the aftermath show the badly damaged Audi later being towed away.
Driver Ms Ai revealed a client of hers had been asleep in the front passenger seat, while the customer’s child was sleeping in the back. It is unclear what she does for a living.
Fortunately, all three of them had been wearing seat belts at the time and were not seriously harmed during the accident.
Ms Ai, who suffered a minor chest fracture, admitted she was “falling asleep” at the wheel.
Investigators said she would be held fully liable for the crash.
It is unclear, however, whether she will be ordered to pay for damages done to the toll road.
