Truck slides on icy road during cold spell in China

This is the moment a truck slid on an icy road during the winter cold spell in China.

Dashcam footage taken in Liaoning province on January 23 shows the lorry slipping on the sleet-covered highway. It almost lost its balance while switching to the adjacent lane to avoid a smaller truck parked on the road shoulder.

Luckily, the driver was able to stabilise the vehicle before carrying on driving.

Chinese New Year will be celebrated on February 1, the date that marks the beginning of the new moon. Festivities will end on February 11.
