This video shows the shocking moment a man was hit by a car on a Russian highway.
The man was moving around beside his own vehicle on the three-lane road, when the incident happened.
His car was stationary in the central lane, behind another that it was in convoy with and the roads were relatively quiet.
Hazard: The man walks round to the trunk of his vehicle, not looking at the car that is coming towards him
In the footage, captured by a passenger in a car in the inside lane and published on liveleak.com, he appears to walk around the side of the silver people wagon, heading for an open boot, which he is looking towards.
Behind him a second car pulls up but others on the road are not so patient.
A black car swings out so as to overtake the line of stopped vehicles as the man reaches the trunk and strikes him with such force that he is flipped up onto its bonnet.
Shocking: The car strikes the man and he is thrown into the air
Powerful: The force of the hit causes the man to do a complete somersault
As the smash happens a woman’s voice can be heard on the video asking ‘what’s that Oh’.
Thedriver does not immediately stop and the victim vaults the bonnet as the car shoots past his own, turned completely upside down with his legs shooting up into the air.
His somersault completes with the man being thrown to the ground on his knees in a crumpled heap, before dropping onto his side.
He curls into a tight ball, laying across the whit line separating two lanes and clutches his right knee.
A black object by the wheel of the front stationary car looks like it might be his shoe, thrown off by the strength of the hit.
Painful: He crashes down onto his side having been thrown the distance of two cars
Injured: The man curls into a ball, clutching his right leg
According to brrrtmn, the LiveLeak user who posted the video, the man survived his ordeal with nothing more than a broken leg.
The video was also posted on YouTube by a user who writes that it was an emergency stop. But the man has not put up warning signs or turned on his hazard lights.
It has been viewed more than 6,000 times and prompted bemused viewers to comment, asking what the man was doing stopped in the middle of the road in the first place.
