Two people are lucky to be alive after their van was crushed by a cement truck in east China's Zhejiang Province.

CCTV footage shows their van didn't give way to the oncoming truck, which was travelling at high speeds and swerved to avoid the van as they crossed paths.

While it first looked as though it might be a lucky escape for the van, the truck then overturned and crushed it.

When emergency services arrived they somehow managed to pull two survivors, a man and a woman, from the mangled wreckage - a very lucky escape for the pair.
