Truck smashes into petrol station office after motorist presses accelerator by mistake

A truck smashed into an office at a petrol station in southwestern China.

The video, filmed in the county of Shiqian in Guizhou Province on December 20, shows a truck smashing into an office through the glass door at a petrol station.

The glass door shattered and the frame knocked a man to the ground.

A worker helped the man get back onto his feet immediately and fortunately, he only suffered minor injuries.

According to reports, the motorist without a driving licence pressed the accelerator instead of the brake by mistake when driving to the petrol station to refill his new truck.

The motorist was blamed for the incident and he will be detained within 15 days.
