Fatal: The driver stood no chance

Horrific dashcam footage captures the moment a driver is crushed to death after a fuel tanker topples over while trying to pass on a narrow mountain road. The grey saloon was along a remote winding dirt track in Yunnan province, eastern China, when the enormous tanker approaches. Each driver tries to squeeze past but the giant truck carrying hundreds of gallons of petrol tips over on its left hand side. The male driver of the five door saloon, who has not been identified, is killed instantly as the tanker crushes the vehicle - leaving an almost FLAT wreckage. Dashcam footage in the car behind captured the scene unfold before emergency services could arrive.
