Surveillance footage posted by China's CGTN shows the tempo failing to stop at an intersection. A car suddenly appears and clips the tempo resulting in the three-wheeler toppling over its side. While a passenger, who was also travelling on the tempo, manages to jump off, the driver gets trapped under it.
Soon, the man and other bystanders gather to rescue the driver from under the vehicle. A group of six to seven Good Samaritans successfully rescue the trapped driver. But as soon as the vehicle is erected, something unexpected happens. The tempo, with the engine still running, zooms off and spins around in circles. A man tries to stop the out-of-control vehicle but is unsuccessful.

Similar scenes played out last year, also in China, when a two-wheeler zoomed off without its rider right after a crash. A family of three was on the scooter when the rider suddenly braked to avoid ramming a car. As the man tried to pick up the scooter, it just took off.
