A truck driver in Qingzhen, south west China recreated the famous last scene of the hit film, The Italian Job. After the brakes failed just before turning a tight corner, the truck drove straight through the cliff barriers. The truck was perched precariously over the cliff face and was mere inches from tipping over and plummeting down a 400ft drop. Luckily for the driver, mounds of sand stopped the vehicle just in time.
“It was enough to slow it down. The driver had been convinced he was going to die and took a lot of persuading to climb out of his cab and back up the truck,” said a police spokesman.”
