A female passenger was thrown from a coach after it overturned and flipped 360 degrees in a dramatic video.

The bus belonging to Huantong Group was being operated by driver Zhang Guangzhong when he suddenly lost control on a slippery road.

Grainy CCTV footage from the township of Damiao in Chaoyang County in north-eastern China’s Liaoning Province captured the moment the coach travels at speed down a slope and tips onto its side.

The momentum of the crash causes the bus to flip 360 degrees as he slams into two parked vehicles and also crashes into a building.

The video shows a plume of dust and debris flying into the air, with the bus appearing to land on top of one of the vehicles.

Local authorities said the female victim, name as 49-year-old Wang Caixia, was thrown from the bus as it rolled and was declared dead after being rushed to hospital.

Driver Zhang and two other injured passengers were treated as well, but the police have not disclosed the exact extent of their injuries.

Huantong Group told local media that it would take full responsibility for the incident, while reports said the coach slipped due to the wet road surface.
