Seatbelt saves motorist's life after car slams into street light

A seatbelt saved a motorist's life after their car slammed into a street light in eastern China.

The dramatic video was shot in the city of Changshu in Jiangsu Province on April 15.

The white car was seen speeding into the pole on an embankment before flipping over.

Passersbys called the police and freed the motorist from the vehicle.

Since the motorist wore a seatbelt, he only suffered minor scratches.

According to reports, the motorist felt sleepy and that led to the incident.
