Missile Strike Lands Just Ahead Of Speeding Car, Disaster Ensues

Ukrainian drive barely escapes

Do dashcams act as sort of a magnet for bizarre events? It's entirely plausible, considering the sheer number of insane things that are caught on the handy video cameras. This latest one comes from Ukraine, which as you probably know, has been locked in a pretty nasty dispute with Russia and allegedly Russian-backed separatists.

In the short video, we see a car driving along a lonely highway when the ground suddenly explodes ahead of him. It's impossible to tell from the video, but the lucky driver thinks he just barely missed being hit by a missile. What kind of missile was involved, considering the smallish size of the explosion, is unclear, but considering the hostilities in the area, his claim might have some merit.
