A cyclist in China who was hit three times by different cars in a horror crash was told he would face penalties for cycling in the road.
In a video, which can be viewed on the Daily Mirror website, the rider, named Guan, was struck repeatedly by cars in Kunshan, Jiangsu province, China.
The collisions were caught on traffic camera - and one of the drivers who got out to help was also hit.
The rider apparently should have been on the pavement, but instead was in the road, and was hit by a car.
Another struck him from the left and then a third from the right.
Guan was taken to hospital where authorities said his injuries were not life-threatening.
Police said all involved in the crashes will be charged for traffic offences including Guan for pedalling in the middle of the road.
