The Russian television show Dorozhnye Voiny (“Road Wars”) has released a montage of some of the luckiest moments caught on video from traffic accidents in Russia and Belarus. The short film features dozens of near misses, showing pedestrians miraculously spared gruesome deaths, drivers narrowly swerving out of harm’s way, and—in one instance—a motorcyclist landing perfectly atop a moving car, instead of being trampled under its wheels.

The video also borrows music from New Zealand composer Mark Petrie, whose song Infinite, Immortal has appeared on several superhero-themed music compilations.
