ANJI, China (NBC/CCTV/RTV) – Surveillance video catches the moment a man becomes one lucky person — very narrowly escaping being crushed between a dump truck and a car that crashed as they tried to speed through an intersection in eastern China. The man was trying to cross the street at this intersection in Anji when the truck and car entered the crossroads from different sides. The two swerved to avoid a collision, but instead bumped into each other as they barreled toward the unsuspecting pedestrian.

Fortunately, the man was able to react quickly and jump out of harm’s way just in time to avoid being crushed between the truck and car. Both the truck and car were damaged in the accident, but no injuries were reported.
