A six-car pile-up occurred earlier this week in Kunming City, capital of southwestern Yunnan Province.
The driver of a Volvo car slammed on the brakes when he saw the car in front of him braked, on a ring road of the city on Monday. He was then hit by the car following him.
Strangely enough, his Volvo “rode on” the Citroen car behind, with four wheels in the air.

“I think the car behind me didn’t brake at all, and crashed into my car.”
Under the impact, the Volvo was pushed forward several meters and caused three cars in the front to crash into one another.
And a car following the Citroen joined the pile-up, too.

“I don’t know what happened. I’m 65 years old and I have 47 years of driving experience. I’ve never had an accident.”
Police say the Citroen driver should take full responsibility for the accident, and would pay for losses of the first five cars in the pile-up.
No casualties were caused.
