CCTV captures terrifying moment car hits sweeping man

A terrifying accident in China's Liaoning Province has been captured on camera, after a driver crashed her car into the front of a restaurant on Monday (local time), injuring three people.

The footage shows an employee sweeping near the entrance, when a red car smashes into him from behind, violently throwing him into the door. A woman and her three-year-old child were also injured, and the restaurant was badly damaged.

The restaurant manager said the car's driver had bent over to pick up a glass, and the car travelled off its path. She panicked and stepped on the accelerator. She has now been taken into police custody for an investigation.
