This is the horrific moment a 19-year-old college student survives miraculously after an SUV and a monster speedy truck collided at a crossing in India.
Ram Singh was waiting for a bus to his home after coming back from a picnic when suddenly a speedy truck and a white Bolero car coming from the opposite directions collided at a crossing.
The shocking incident which was captured on the CCTV camera took place in Banda, Sagar, in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.
Before being hit by the car, Singh can be seen in the video standing on the road while another teenager is tying his shoelaces.
A white SUV coming exactly from the opposite direction where Kumar is standing and takes a right turn. Suddenly, a speedy truck comes from the other direction and hits the car so powerfully that it is slammed on to the roadside where it knocks down Singh.
Ankit Singh, an eyewitness, said: “It was a miracle how the driver of the car and this young student survived.
“I saw the boy shivering when I ran for his help.”
Appallingly, the truck driver did not stop his vehicle after hitting the car, instead tried to flee from the spot.
Senior police officer at Banda Police station, Bardari Prasad Dewedi, said: “The truck driver tried to flee from the spot but was stopped by people after covering a short distance and handed him over to police.”
Fortunately, Singh and the driver of the SUV, Narender Kumar, sustained minor injuries. They were immediately taken to a nearby hospital where they were given first aid.
Both Singh and Kumar were discharged from the hospital within an hour.
