Driver saved from car crash by obeying police instructions over phone

This is the terrifying moment a driver escaped being hit by a semi-trailer on Shanghai–Kunming Expressway after pulling his car over and getting out on the hard shoulder.

In the CCTV video, captured in Jiaxing City in eastern China's Zhejiang Province on March 20, a man steps out of his electric car which had broken down, and asks help from police on his phone while standing on the other side of the guardrails.

However, a semi-trailer suddenly speeds into the car from its back and drags it forward, completely smashing it.

According to reports, the driver followed police instructions after his car broke down to turn on a warning sign for 150m before pulling over, then putting on the emergency flashers and stand off the road.

The semi-trailer driver did not notice the car and crashed into it because of fatigue while driving.

Fortunately, no one was injured.
