(CCTV/CNN) - Dashcam footage from southern China shows the moment a mudslide hit a busy road full of cars.

The cars start out inching along in traffic, until they're swept away in a massive wave of mud.

A total of eight vehicles were buried.

Emergency crews managed to clear the road to rescue drivers and passengers trapped in their cars.

It's not clear if anyone was seriously injured or died as a result of the mudslide.
