This is the moment a biker only narrowly cheated death after skipping a red light and being hit by a lorry which almost fell on top of him as it tipped over.
In the footage, a motorcyclist known only as Mr Zheng, who does not appear to be wearing a helmet, is seen falling to the tarmac and narrowly avoiding being run over by the lorry's wheels before then also escaping being hit by the lorry cargoes it tips over.
The black SUV waiting at the lights however was not so lucky, with the force of the material that hits it sending the vehicle backwards several metres.
Following the dangerous driving the Jiaxing Traffic Police in the Chinese province of Zhejiang said Mr Zheng had brushed shoulders with 'the Grim Reaper'.
