Toddler thrown into path of lorry after crash

A baby has escaped death after being flung through the back window of a car in Russia and into the path of a lorry. The dramatic moment involving the one-year-old was captured on camera by a car travelling behind it.

The video shows how the car skids out of control and smashes into a lorry. It leaves the girl on the road in the path of another vehicle which only misses her by a few inches. The toddler was treated for minor injuries.
