While we're not completely sure on the specifics of this video, two things we know for sure are that (1) this dashcam owner really needs to learn how to edit a video and (2) the driver of this car will likely stay in his or her lane during future turns.

After spending a minute and a half of staring at what has to be one of the worst-designed intersections in the world, the driver of this dashcam-equipped car starts to make a left-hand turn and attempts to go around a Toyota minivan that is slowing down for a large truck. In doing so, the car ends up behind a crane being hauled on a lowboy trailer, and at some point the crane hooks to the car. What we can't see is how the car gets hooked to the crane, but it's enough to pick the car up, turn it 90 degrees and drag it down the street at a 45-degree angle with horns blaring and tires screeching. The unknowing truck driver is only made aware of the situation thanks to a moped rider who speeds by the entangled vehicles and gets the truck to stop.

Scroll down to watch the frightening video (and skip to the 1:34 mark for the action to get started).

      The wait at the light was more frightening that the short side trip.

      The most bizarre aspect of this video is the road layout. I can't work out what's going on. There seems to be two parallel roads going in the same direction and the only way to turn left is to cross over the other road. Meanwhile vehicles traveling in the opposite direction that are taking a right are also try to push in. I can't see any traffic lights so it looks like total chaos and you just have to barge your way through. Maybe I'm missing something.

        Agreed. I'd love to see a schematic of that intersection and try to dissect it.

        I watched the first part twice trying to figure out what's going on too. It just seems like it's some kind of wild West deal where you just muscle in and hope you don't get crushed. No wonder so many Chinese people drive so badly when they come over here, they had to drive like that to get anywhere back home.

      Thinking it could be a magnetic crane used at construction sites and other yards for metal salvage that could be in transport... Sometimes they forget the magnet switch on like sometime some people leave a boom up in the air and start driving the trailer.

      I really like the part that says "scroll down" with a hyperlink to nowhere.

        Driver is a guy not a girl. What you can't tell a guy's voice from a girl's? LOL

        No, someone didn't have to say it. And by your name, you must be pretty sick of yourself.
