Horrific moment a passenger is thrown through the rear windscreen of a car as it crashes

Updated: 

This is the truly terrifying moment a passenger was thrown through the rear windscreen of a car as it lost control and crashed on a highway in the Chongqing municipality of south-western China.

The black car can be seen losing control in very wet conditions before colliding with the Armco barrier and violently spinning.


As it spins you see an occupant of the vehicle flying through the rear-windscreen of the car and sliding underneath the opposite crash barrier while the car continues to rotate.

Two other occupants – a woman sitting in the rear and the driver - were treated for minor injuries, while the ejected passenger was treated for multiple broken bones according to the Mirror.

Chongqing authorities confirmed that none of the passengers were wearing their seatbelt despite the fact that it became a mandatory requirement in 2004.

The regulation is generally ignored in China – with this shocking footage being a prime example of why it is so important to always wear a seatbelt.
