Video: Russian cyclist lucky to come out of this crash unscathed

Due to the popularity of dashcams in Russia, we’ve seen some frightening things happen on the roads over there, but we don’t know if we’ve ever seen anything like an incident that was captured on CCTV footage in the city of Lyubertsy a couple of days ago.

At the start of the clip below not much is happening apart from a cyclist meandering along a quiet road towards a crossroads when suddenly, a car coming in the opposite direction collides spectacularly with a truck coming from the cyclist’s right, sending the truck up on its side and into a ditch a number of yards away.


It appears as if the collision was caused by the truck ignoring a yield sign but the most amazing thing is how the cyclist emerges unscathed having merely brushed up against the truck despite being caught in between both vehicles.
