It's one of the ultimate fear-inducing thoughts: You're driving down the road minding your own business, maybe singing a soft rendition "Summer Breeze," when suddenly, a semi-truck takes a sharp turn and starts barreling toward you. For one Russian man, this scenario was a reality.

A truck pulling a tractor-trailer took a corner too fast on a two-lane highway in Russia. Caught on an SUV's dash cam, the top-heavy semi starts heading right towards the SUV's driver. The two vehicles collide with horrifying violence.

Unbelievably, the driver of the SUV stands up right after the crash and both drivers survived. Check out the video for yourself above.

      Another invisible (in this case) or unviewable (nearly all others) AOL videos. I don't even bother trying to view them anymore if I know it's a video by AOL. Unfortunately, Yahoo is starting to go down that same path!

      and how is it that someone just "happens to be" filming that exact spot when this happens...sounds like a set up to me...

        many people in addition to commercial vehicles - buses in particular - have continuously on 'dash' cams today, not just police

      A "truck" pulling a tractor trailer??? Really Carissa? dont get out much do you? AND your a reporter? Give me a break. ......have you ever heard of "tractor trailer" not a truck pulling a tractor trailer. How about a truck pulling a trailer. Come on no editors?

      Great job reporting, dummies. Are these people really this dumb? Here's what's wrong, 1) It was not a "truck pulling a tractor trailer". It was simply a tractor trailer 2) The tractor trailer was not turning a corner, it was coming around a bend. 3) The tractor trailer did not swerve. It was simply going too fast for the bend and tipped onto it's side. 4) My favorite. "The two vehicles collide with horrifying violence." Really???? It looked to me like bothe vehicles were almost at a stop when they did collide. If that's "horrifying violence" what do these fools call a serious collision??? Fine reporting morons.

      Typical AOL "news" store.......make that fictional story......laughable.

      The news woman said " a truck pulling a tractor trailer." That unit is a tractor trailer. She has no idea what she is talking about or which one is the tractor or the trailer. Just brilliant, and these people have degrees in journalism?

        That's common for the great majority of journalists. They usually report on topics they know nothing, or next to nothing, about. Many weren't the brightest in the class either.

      Just to let the American public know as well as the world, 4 wheelers (cars) flip over every day. Just saw two of those 4 wheelers on there roofs in Missouri on interstate 70 today. Good job 4 wheelers as usual. Also, just to let the miss informed public know, that the food they eat, clothes they wear, cars they drive and all the other goods that the public uses was transported by a semi-truck at one time or another. It would be a great day for the semi-truck drivers to go on strike. Lets see how people would survive then????????

        What brought that on? I guess you're doing the best you can with the few years of schooling you must have had.

      Not a semi, not a semi pulling a trailer, and certainly not a truck pulling a tractor-trailer. Scott got it right... hardly "horrifying". Just a bad driver taking a turn too fast and laying his truck down.
