It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Nowhere is this more clearly illustrated than in the photo below.
Yang Junsheng, 24, from Taizhou, Zhejianag Province, was running from the police when he cheated death.
He escaped with barely a scratch after smashing into a pickup truck carrying hundreds of steel bars that crashed through his windshield.
Yang had the presence of mind to duck as the steel bars came flying through his window. And to say he was lucky that all of them missed impaling him is an understatement.
“My mind was very clear at that second, and I immediately dived down onto the passenger seat. I heard an explosion, and when the car stopped, I couldn’t move because the car was full of metal bars. They were everywhere,” Yang told the press.
Although in shock, he sustained only a few minor scratches, when he should have been painfully and seriously dead.
After one look at the car, police at the scene were amazed that the driver not only survived but also was basically unharmed.
Yang was trying to elude punishment and capture for driving a vehicle that was unregistered.
He was sent to the hospital, but doctors affirmed that he sustained no injuries, apart from a few scratches.
Perhaps, like the proverbial cat, Yang has nine lives. If so, he has eight left and should spend at least some of them registering his vehicle!
