A year-old girl has survived after being ejected from her parents' car when they spun out of control and crashed on a highway in Russia. The dashboard camera of a passing car captured the accident.

­The miraculous escape happened on the icy Moscow-Ufa highway. An SUV was trying to overtake, went into a spin and hit a truck in the oncoming lane. As the back window popped out in the crash, a one-year-old girl was thrown out of the vehicle together with much of her family's belongings.

Once on the roadway and trying to crawl back to her car, the toddler barely escaped being run over by a passing truck. The driver of the truck risked going into spin as he swerved to avoid hitting the child. The following truck managed to stop and allow the parents rescue her.

The panicked parents jumped out of their crashed vehicle to remover the girl from the roadway.




The lucky toddler was taken to the hospital with a head injury.

Police say it was illegal to overtake on that section of the highway. Also, the girl was not in a baby seat, which would have stopped her from being ejected and made her trip safer. Shockingly, she wasn't even secured in a regular seat, but lying on the rear deck of the car, seemingly in the hope she would sleep through a long inter-city journey.
