Motorcyclists are often the most vulnerable on the road – just getting bumped could end in tragedy.

But one motorcyclist escaped a near-death incident – without a scratch – after he collided with a truck.

The freak accident took place at 8:55 am in China – the exact location is not yet clear.  

The video, which was posted by the People’s Daily China on Twitter and captioned “near miss”, shows the motorcyclist trying to veer out of the way after spotting the red truck.

He overbalances – and collides with the side of the truck.

The massive vehicle can then be seen dragging the motorbike under its wheels, which is then crushed in a matter of seconds.

Miraculously the biker falls off his two-wheeler just before it gets dragged along with the truck – and is able to get up unscathed.

As if nothing had happened, the motorcyclist continues to walk across the intersection while the lorry and another car stop in a panic.

“Not near miss, a great truck driver saved that idiot’s life which had no sense of driving [sic.],” a Twitter user commented.

“It's crazy how lucky that guy was,” said another.
