A driver has survived after his car collided with guardrails, spun and flipped over on an expressway in east China.

The breathtaking moment happened on Hanghui Expressway in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, on May 13, thepaper.cn reported.

In the footage, a car can be seen suddenly hitting the guardrails on the right of the road and then spinning out of control before rolling over and coming to a stop.

The driver, surnamed Wang, said he thought his was speeding at the time, so he stepped on the brake to slow down. His car suddenly slid on the wet road and lost control.

Thanks to his seat belt, Wang didn't suffer any injuries in the incident.

An investigation showed Wang drove at a speed close to 120 kilometers per hour, which is not considered speeding on that stretch of road, but police said he should still take full responsibility for the accident due to his "improper" braking.
