A taxi has been wrecked by tonnes of instant noodles.

Lin Hu, 43, was in his green and yellow cab when a truck delivering a large quantity of the food lost control and toppled on top of it.

The driver was unscathed in the incident, Metro reports.

Lin recalled that the truck was trying to turn at an intersection, adding: "It was swaying from side to side and could hardly steer. There was nothing I could do to keep out of its way.

"I'm lucky to have walked away from the accident, but my cab is a write-off."

Lin also claimed that he will seek compensation from the company operating the truck.
