CRINGE-WORTHY CRASH: This lucky man managed to avoid being hit by two heavy vehicles after they veered into the station where he was filling his truck.

When you're filling up at a fuel station the last thing you'd expect is a brush with death, courtesy of a irresponsible truck driver.

A Russian man escaped what could easily have been a tragic accident when a truck, bus and a number of cars crashed around - rather than into - him while he was filling his truck at a fuel station.

A video uploaded to YouTube shows a truck ignoring the oncoming bus (equipped with a dash camera) to turn into the fuel station.


The two vehicles collide and veer into the station where the lucky man is filling his truck.

The dash camera of the bus captures the chaos and shows how the man manages to move away just in time.

According to authorities no major injuries were reported though we're pretty sure the lucky truck driver would havel needed a change of pants.
