(ABC News) A very lucky baby girl narrowly avoided death after the car she was riding in skidded out of control on an icy Russian highway and slammed into an oncoming truck.

The 1-year-old girl, who was not strapped into a carseat, was ejected from the car and landed face down on the pavement. A passing truck was able to slow down to avoid running over her. The entire ordeal was captured on the dashboard camera of a vehicle driving right behind the crash.
