It's unclear why this man in Russia had stopped his car in the middle of the freeway and was standing amid the speeding traffic. But one thing is absolutely certain about the situation: He is beyond lucky to be alive.

As you can see in the fairly graphic video above, as the man surveys his parked car, another vehicle comes speeding by and utterly clobbers him, sending him flipping through the air and crashing violently to the concrete. In what can only be described as a miracle, the man suffered only a broken leg when all was said and done.

The other person seen in the clip jumped into the trunk of the stopped vehicle and was unharmed in the incident.

Check out the video for yourself above and be prepared to cringe ...
