This is the terrifying moment a landslide sent rocks flying onto the road and smashing into passing cars.

A video shows how debris went hurtling onto the carriageway in Chongqing city in south west China, hitting two cars.

Dash camera footage shows the moment the vehicles were hit by the falling rocks, with plumes of dust engulfing the road.

It is thought that the drivers of both cars had a miracle escape, surviving the freak accident without injury.

Their cars, however, were left damaged as a result of the impact on Saturday afternoon.

Another video shows how the road was blocked after the rocks fell from the side of a hill.

The motorist who filmed the accident later said: "I hope the rocks by the road can be fixed in case of potential danger."

The cause of the collapse is not currently known however it is likely the rocks were loosened by recent rainfall.

Landslides of this kind are not rare in Chongqing city which is surrounded by mountains.

Chongqing is one of the main cities in South East China and, in 201, was described as one of the country’s "30 emerging megacities".
