Video: Chinese lorry driver in dramatic near-miss

Startling footage has emerged from China, showing a lorry driver desperately trying to bring his vehicle under control as it teeters on two wheels, on the brink of overturning.

Occurring in heavy traffic on the Zhoushan over-sea bridge in Zhejiang province, the driver had braked hard to avoid colliding with another vehicle, which sent the lorry into a wobble, resulting in it perilously bouncing from side to side on two wheels.

Despite careering from one side of the carriageway to the other, the driver somehow manages to avoid colliding with other traffic on the busy bridge, though cannot overcome the pendulum movement of his lorry, with the vehicle eventually crashing onto its side.

Luckily no one was seriously injured in the accident, though one of the lorry's passengers was taken to hospital with minor head injuries.
