Cyclists narrowly avoid disaster when trucks collide in Russia.

Two cyclists in Kirovskaya Oblast, Russia — perhaps a father and son — miraculously avoided becoming victims in a massive truck crash caused when one truck swerved to avoid them.

A dash cam, common in Russia, caught incredible video of the incident west of Moscow and it was shared by LiveLeak over the weekend:

Amazingly, when the swerving truck smashed into an oncoming truck, the cyclists somehow avoided the wreckage debris, coming out unscathed.

The incident brings to mind other cyclists who escaped death, such as the woman cyclist in a crosswalk in Taiwan and the cyclist missing a bus in the U.K.

The title of this video is certainly apropos: "Luckiest cyclists alive!!"
