XINGTAI, CHINA (CCTV/CNN) - An odd surveillance video went viral online in China recently, showing three vehicles jump off the road.

The video shows two minibuses rose high and suddenly when they were at an intersection in Xingtai in China's north Hebei Province.

The vehicle in front overturned and one behind it collided with another car. A third car traveling in the opposite direction, also came off the road.

The culprit behind the accident was a steel cable on the ground. The cable was snagged by a passing sanitation vehicle, seen on the right side of the video. When the cable was pulled tight, it came off the road and tripped up the vehicles.
