YANGQUAN, China, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- A vehicle that slid on a snowy road in China ended up lodged between two walls in a difficult situation reminiscent of Austin Powers.

A video showing the aftermath of the incident Tuesday in Yangquan, Shanxi Province, shows the car blocking off a narrow passageway by being wedged lengthwise between two walls.

Witnesses said the car became stuck when it slipped on a snow-covered road and swerved into its predicament.

The video shows people having to pass through the car to reach the other side.

The trapped car evoked a famous scene from 1997 film Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, where the titular character ends up in a similar situation while trying to do a three-point turn in a golf cart.
