Husband and wife struck by cars in same spot just minutes apart


A woman and her husband were both hit by a car in the same spot just minutes apart.

Footage from a traffic camera in the city of Yichang in China shows the woman – known as Ms Gao – on an electric bike cutting across several lanes of cars queuing at a red light before she collides with a car.

While she’d tended to by traffic police, her husband is seen sprinting towards his injured wife – and just as he reaches the spot where his wife was hit, he’s also struck by a car.

According to local authorities, the two accidents happened just 10 minutes apart.

Ms Gao and her husband were taken to hospital for treatment, but neither was in a life-threatening condition.

Police are still investigating the cases.
