A lorry driver had a lucky escape as his vehicle collided with another truck on a Russian highway.

Video footage shows a large lorry swerving to the left and crashing into an oncoming truck.

The truck was seriously damaged, but the driver was apparently unhurt as he was thrown out of the front window by the impact.

that's what the comments say. he was NOT wearing a seatbelt and for once that saved his life. look at the end of the clip when it is turned on to slow motion. he is thrown out through the windscreen and comes up standing on fis feet. suppose that guy will celebrate that day as his second birthday for many years to come.

Indeed. Man is mortal, and sometimes, SUDDENLY mortal, as Woland said in "M+M". Hopefully, he will ponder on that, and we should, too.
