From around the world, we’ve heard of planes, birds, even fish falling from the sky. But a steel container truck dropping right onto an Audi?

According to Nandu.com, the incident, which took place in Quanzhou, China, involved a container truck falling and crushing the entire passenger compartment of an Audi, leaving only the front and back ends intact.

The impact almost killed the two passengers inside the car. And despite the intense crushing force from the container truck, the car’s doors still opened, leading the two passengers to safety.

Although it wasn’t exactly clear how an oversized steel box ended on a prized car, the scene looked like something borne out of an action-packed Hollywood flick.

And what do we make of a completely decimated passenger compartment with the rest of the car’s body still intact? Just a few tweaks and the Audi could pass for a posh convertible.
