A biker died under 10 tons of boiling hot tar after this freak crash in Yuhuan, eastern China.
Trucker Yang Fu told police in Zhejiang province that the lorry had overturned when he was forced to brake hard after the scooter pulled out in front of him.
"The bitumen poured out all over the man on the bike. You could smell it burning.
"There were some terrible screams and then silence," said witness Liu Jin.
Firefighters needed special heat proof boots as they searched for the bikers body in the tar, which was being kept at a temperature of 100 degrees Celsius in the truck.
"He was beyond saving. He would have been dead within the first minute," said an emergency services spokesman.
