Russian cyclist makes miraculous escape - video

Amazing video shows lucky rider cheat death twice within seconds

A CCTV camera has caught the spectacularly lucky escape of a Russian cyclist last weekend.

The video shows a man cycling across the road at junction, just as a car and a truck collide on the main road. The crashing car narrowly avoids hitting the cyclist, before the truck overturns seconds later, missing him by mere inches.

Apparently no one was injured in the high-speed collision, which you can see below:
