This is the shocking moment a car drove out from the bottom a moving lorry on a road in east China.

A lorry driver and a passenger can be seen jolting side to side as the vehicle got pushed to the barrier by a private car.

Initial investigation by the police suggested the private car's driver was attempting to overtake the lorry, so it changed lanes by force. No injuries have been reported.

Jiangsu Traffic Police posted CCTV footage on Weibo, a Twitter-like social media site, and stated the lorry driver, surnamed Tang, was driving on Nanjing-Ma'anshan Highway on October 10.

The lorry started to rattle before a small car rushed out in between the front wheels.

Tang applied emergency brake as the lorry was pushed to the left, hitting the barrier.

Both vehicles were damaged but no injuries were reported, according to Jiangsu traffic policemen.

An initial investigation suggested that the private car forced to cut into the lane where the lorry was on.

The car went beneath the lorry and forcefully dashed out from the front.

The lorry driver made an emergency stop on the road.

However, web users believed the lorry driver was the one to be responsible for the incident.

'The lorry was staying too long on the fast lane. The private car could not overtake and was forced to do that,' commented 'yazhoumuwang'.

'It looks like the lorry driver was trying to take over the small car,' questioned 'nimaye'.
