The child who cheated death twice. Little girl survives being hurled from car and then near miss with truck.
This is the heart-stopping moment a two-year-old girl is flung from the back window of a crashed car and into the path of an oncoming truck. The video clearly shows her parents' Mitsubishi swerve across both lanes of an icy Moscow road before colliding with a truck, the back window popping and the two-year-old being thrown out into the middle of the road on impact.

Miraculously the child misses the wheels of an oncoming Scania truck by inches as her parents scramble out of the car to pluck her to safety. The truck driver slams on his brakes as he passes the crawling toddler and narrowly avoids what would have been a sickening car accident. The adopted girl suffered cuts and bruising to the head and was taken to CRH Lyskovo Hospital where she received treatment.
The near miss happened on Sunday evening in Moscow and shows just how dangerous driving conditions can be in Russia. So dangerous, in fact, that motorists are using dashboard cameras to capture any incident for insurance purposes. As a result, more and more footage of shocking traffic incidents, such as this, are emerging from the country.
