A motorcyclist has narrowly escaped certain death after two cars smashed into one another inches from him on a Russian highway in newly released footage

In what seems like a miracle, the footage shows a passing car coming southbound veer from his lane and smash into an oncoming car just in front of the motorbike.

Somehow, as the two cars spin out of control, the motorcyclist continues nonchalantly along the highway between the drivers.

The incident took place on a highway near the city of Taganrog in southwestern Russia some years ago but the footage has only recently been unearthed.

A female passenger in her 50s is said to have suffered injuries and was taken to hospital.
