Watch Report: Luckiest cyclist in Russia and quite possibly the world

This could possibly be the luckiest cyclist in Russia – or even the world.

The cyclist was biking across a pedestrian crossing in Moscow as a truck approached to his right.

As the truck fails to stop at the intersection, a red car is seen speeding along the main road, a video uploaded to Liveleak yesterday shows.

The red saloon swerves right in an attempt to avoid the larger vehicle but is hit on the rear bumper sending it spinning out of control towards the cyclist.

Incredibly, both the car and a chunk of debris which falls off during the collision, narrowly miss him by inches.

But this isn’t his luckiest escape.

The cyclist is then knocked off the bike by the lorry as it spins left.

Somehow, it appears the driver may have tried to correct the spin, the truck then goes up on two wheels passing over the cyclist, who had been knocked to the floor.
