An one-year-old girl baby girl barely avoided death after the Mitsubishi SUV, which she was riding in, hit an oncoming truck in Russia, reports ABC News (video below).

The infant was ejected from the car and landed on the pavement. A passing truck was able to avoid running over her.

The accident was recorded on the dashboard camera of a car behind the accident.

A 53-year-old driver lost control of his Mitsubishi SUV when trying to pass another car, but hit the truck in the oncoming lane.

The driver placed the baby on the shelf under the back windshield, not in a carseat.

Moments after the crash, the driver scooped up the girl and rushed to put her back in the car.

Russian news reports say she suffered injuries to her head and face.
