Chinese driver rolls big-rig in traffic – Click above to watch video after the jump

Running a red light in your standard passenger vehicle is never a good idea. Trying to rush a trailer-laden semi-truck through a busy intersection is far, far worse. Such a machine has a lot of weight to throw around, as one Chinese driver recently learned. Physics strikes again!

The truck ends up on its side, but this crash could've been a lot worse. A quartet of two-wheeled traffic-goers hit the brakes at just the right time, and fortunately, a nearby cyclist was also paying rapt attention to the wayward cargo-hauler.

Click past the jump to watch a truck driver try to imitate Sam Hubinette... unsuccessfully.

      Yes, the truck is going too fast. But it's the scooter to his left that rolls into the intersection that forces the truck driver to delay starting his left turn until it's too late...
