Video footage showing a car suspended in the air between a tree and a wall, following a spectacular accident, has left netizens scratching their heads.

Witnesses said the male driver, apparently un his 20s or 30s, survived without any serious injury, as did his passenger, who managed to climb out of the car while it was dangling in the air.

The incident took place in the city of Ningxiang in China’s central Hunan province

According to witnesses, the accident happened at around 3pm on 13 December as the motorist and his passenger were hurtling down a village road.

The driver swerved violently to avoid a collision with another vehicle, causing his own car to veer off the road and slam into ab outside wall of the house.

The accident was over in seconds but the car remained stuck between the concrete and a tree.

Images show the bonnet, roof and boot of the car all badly damaged, with the vehicle still hanging in its awkward location as villagers and police gather to assess the accident.
