This footage shows a Chinese farmer speed by in an out-of-control tractor and smash through a concrete barrier into a courtyard below landing him in a coma.

Footage provided by police in Zibo City in East China’s Shandong Province shows the moment the farmer surnamed Li failed to stop his vehicle while driving down a hill.

As he approaches a bend, the farmer can be seen holding onto the tractor, which is pulling a trailer, and he is unable to stop or turn before it crashes straight through a concrete barrier next to the elevated road.

The video shows him taking out a lamppost in the process, flipping the tractor and landing within the walled private residence.

Li’s injuries include multiple broken bones in the upper and lower half of his body, police said, with his tractor thought to have landed on top of him as he fell into the courtyard.

Paramedics found the man unconscious on the ground below and rushed him to hospital, where he continues to receive emergency treatment.

Li is understood to have already undergone surgery but remains in the intensive care unit in a comatose state.

The accident is still under investigation, but the police said they suspected brake failure as the cause.
