Final Destination? Huge Blade Cuts Into Chinese Driver’s Pickup On Highway

Looking at this giant saw blade damaged JMC pickup, you’d think it was some sort of movie prop, but it isn’t. It’s the result of direct physical contact and actually a pretty awesome sight.

We’re obviously happy that the driver is okay and all that, especially since it looks like he was driving one of the local market pickups (which aren’t renowned for safety). The blade missed the passenger compartment by not that much at all…

Why did it fly off on the highway? It was obviously not fastened down as it was being transported in the back of a larger flatbed. We presume it was a pothole or unevenness in the road that may have made the carrier vehicle bounce and send it airborne.

There’s no video of the event unfolding, but some photos of the scene can be seen in the gallery below.
