(Scroll down for video) A little girl who came flying out of a car during an accident, miraculously survived, according to video uploaded to the Internet.

The girl was thrown from the back of the vehicle when an oncoming vehicle slammed into it.

The 1-year-old child can then be seen laying on a Russian icy road as a large truck approached her.

The child survived the ordeal with only a few lesions on the face and head. A second truck drove around the rubble, just missing the baby.

The accident occurred when the girl's father, 53, tried to speed ahead of the vehicle in front of him moving into the opposite lane, a move clearly prohibited by the solid white line in the middle of the road.

Moments later, he learned why these actions are not allowed. The Mitsubishi car lost traction when accelerating, causing the vehicle to skid back against traffic.

The police blamed the driver not only for reckless driving, but failing to strap his child in a child seat.

A camera on the dashboard of the vehicle recorded the accident, which occurred Sunday in Nizhny Novgorod province in Russia on a highway linking Moscow and Ufa. The girl was taken to a hospital in Lyskovo.
