A woman has had an extremely lucky escape after stepping out onto a road from between two cars - just as another one came careering into them.

The heart-in-mouth moment was caught on CCTV, and captures the moment the woman miraculously survived being crushed between three cars.

The incident occurred when the unnamed lady stepped out on Alum Rock Road, Birmingham, just before a car crashes into them, creating a fatal-looking pile-up.

Another woman and a 10-year-old boy were also injured in the crash, but all are expected to make a full recovery.

According to the Mirror, shopkeeper Abdul Jabbar, 44, who witnessed the crash, said: "A woman got squashed between two cars - a silver car and a parked black one.

"Everyone was shocked. Then the police and ambulance came."

The Birmingham Mail reports that the West Midlands Police said in a statement: "Police were called at around 3:40pm on 20 October after a vehicle collided with three parked vehicles and a pedestrian on Alum Rock Road.

''Two women suffered non life threatening head injuries while a 10-year-old boy suffered a leg injury.

"Inquiries are currently ongoing. Drivers were spoken at the scene to but nobody has been arrested."
