Video: Russian cyclists in very lucky escape as lorries collide

Cloud of debris scattered across road - but somehow two bike riders were apparently unscathed

A dashcam video from Russia shows the lucky escape of two cyclists when a lorry overtaking them overbalanced and collided with another truck, sending a cloud of debris across the road.

Incredibly, neither cyclist appeared to be hurt in the incident which according to the description of the video took place in the city of Kirov, which lies around 500 miles east of Moscow.

Last year, another cyclist in Russia had a very close escape when he was riding through a junction when a car and lorry collide, both vehicles somehow missing him.
