Miraculously, the girl only suffered cuts and bruises to the head, and was taken to CRH Lyskovo Hospital for treatment.

The accident happened on Sunday night, and is another example of how dangerous driving on roads in Russia can be.

According to the Daily Mail, more and more motorists are using dashboards cameras to capture any incidents like this for insurance purposes.
