We’ve seen the consequences of drivers who confuse accelerators for brakes, which are sometimes awful, but never anything as jaw-dropping as this. In Ningbo, Zhejiang province on July 26, a red car plows into a woman and child riding an electric bike, and for whatever reason, the car doesn’t stop until it hits a wall. The mother and child completely disappear underneath the car as those nearby are sent scampering.
But then, after everyone’s recovered from their shock, they spring into action. Dozens of people assist in lifting the car off the ground, and the injured bike riders are pulled out. An ambulance arrives not long after, and we’re told the mother, though she sustained a fractured pelvis and collarbone, will live, while the child only suffered skin wounds. Youku video for those in China after the jump.
