A Chinese driver has dodged serious injuries after being hurled onto his car’s roof during a high-speed motorway crash.
The motorist, known only by his surname Wang, was standing in front of his broken-down car when a van rear-ended it in eastern China’s Jiangsu Province last week, according to police.
Mr Wang sustained minor injuries, officers said.
