Talk about being lucky!
So while this guy was getting ran over by a truck and somehow surviving, a motorcyclist out in Nanchang, capital of east China’s Jiangxi Province, was crashing into a truck, being set ablaze and oh, surviving.
The incident occurred this past weekend, and it was caught on video as you see the motorcyclist, whose surname is Chen, attempt to stop before crashing into a truck that was trying to make a left turn. And since life blows sometimes, Chen crashed right into the fuel tank, immediately sparking a fire.
Check out the insane video below.

Well that was nuts.
The truck driver, Yang Juyong, and the passengers escaped from the truck and thankfully were able to help Chen.
“My truck was also on fire at that time. The door on my side could not open as the fire was darting over,” Yang said. “I opened the door on the passenger side and jumped out. Then I rushed to the injured man (Chen) and rescued him.”
Luckily for Chen, his injuries are somehow not life threatening.
“The first thing that came into my mind was rescuing the man,” Yang adds. “I did not care that my truck was burned. What I was thinking was trying to rescue that man first.”
And that’s the story of why Chen will now take the bus to work.
