True, Russian dashboard cameras have afforded us hundreds and hundreds of spine-tingling accidents over the years, but we cannot honestly remember any as shocking as this one, and at the same time, ending on a happy note.
Once again, the protagonist in this scene is driving a classic Lada / VAZ 2101 saloon.
We're not sure if the driver attempted a foolish overtake of if he was trying to avoid something on the road, but he drove between two busses in his lane and lost control of the RWD sedan crashing side first into a large truck on the other lane, which sent him flying into one of the busses (with the camera).
At this point, most viewers are likely be holding their breath and preparing to push the stop button to avoid any gory scenes. But wait, this isn’t the case. As you will soon see, the driver jumps out of the windshield of what remained of his car all by himself!
While not evident from this video, Russian news sites reported that there was a rear passenger in the Lada as well. The driver reportedly suffered a couple of broken ribs, but was soon released from the hospital, while the passenger in the rear seat only had a few bruises. No one else was hurt.
If this isn't the definition of luck, we don't what is…
Thanks to everyone for the tips!
