(CBS) - A Russian amateur dashboard video of a baby girl miraculously surviving a horrible car crash became an internet sensation.

A video shows a car smashing into a truck near the town of Nizhny Novgorod, about 300 miles east of Moscow.

As a result of the crash, a baby girl wrapped in her blanket was flung in front of onpassing traffic on the wrong lane.

One huge truck is seen driving narrowly around her in a last-gasp movement to avoid running over her as the girl is trying to get on all fours to escape, before her father rushes out of the car to snatch her from under the next truck approaching.

The baby's mother is then seen rushing from the back door to pick a baby blanket and her handbag from the wrong lane, too.

The traffic police said later that the one-year-old baby girl was not in the child car seat but was just simply laying across the car's back seat.
