What a close shave!

The above video best describes the phrase "escaping by the skin of your teeth". The incident took place in China on 22 Jan 2013 in the city of Linhai, Zhejiang Province.

A biker was waiting at a cross junction when a container truck took a hard left turn and overturned. The biker, sensing the imminent disaster, moved his bike slightly backwards.

Fortunately, the container missed him slightly and he escaped unharmed. Looking at the impact, the poor man might have a ringing tone in his ears for the next few hours but that is better than becoming a piece of human pancake.

While waiting at the traffic junction, the bike was actually stationed beyond the white line, which I believe he is not supposed to do so although I am not very familiar with the Chinese traffic rules. After this encounter, I guess he would be more prudent.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
