A one-year-old girl cheated death twice in a car crash on an icy road.
    
A dash cam captured the crash in Russia on Jan. 20, in which an SUV slid out of control in the wrong lane, and was sideswiped by an oncoming tractor trailer.

The one-year-old girl, riding in the SUV, was flung out of the backseat window and onto the icy road, in the path of another tractor trailer (keep an eye on the left side of the video). That 18-wheeler narrowly missed the baby, before the child's father rushed out to grab her.

According to reports, the one-year-old girl was not strapped into an appropriate car seat. Instead, she was seated on a blanket behind the driver's seat.

The baby was treated for minor cuts and bruises at a hospital.
