Videos of a car lodged in the roof of a house after its driver lost control of the vehicle on the expressway have been circulating among Chinese netizens.

The incident happened in Taizhou, Jiangsu province on Mar 10.

Surveillance footage shows the moment that the driver lost control of the SUV after he swerved trying to avoid a pedicab.

The car then bounced over a ditch into the nearby roof.
