A dramatic video from the Newsflare archive of a man surviving a terrifying collision with a cement truck in Texas, USA.

Dr. Guan Zhu, a professor at Texas A&M University, was behind the wheel of his minivan on the 8th April 2014 when the truck, coming from the opposite direction ran a red light and lost control.

Dr Zhu’s dashboard camera shows the heavy truck swerving across the road before tipping onto its side and colliding head-on with Dr. Zhu’s van.

Amazingly, Dr. Zhu only suffered minor injuries and he said he wasn’t sure what had happened until he watched the footage back:

"It's what happened, you know, I could not remember in my memory, a truck is coming, and I could not remember exactly how it happened and then the video says that's how it happened, kind of turning like 45 degrees before it hits my vehicle," he told KBTX news.

According to local news, the driver of the cement truck also avoided major injury and was given a ticket at the scene.
