It's a story of drama, a near miss and miraculous survival. And it comes straight from a Russian dashboard camera.

A motorist was driving along a road in Russia on December 12, when out of nowhere a cattle truck clips a van then slides into the opposite lane. Overturning, it spills bewildered cattle over the road, stopping just short of the oncoming car.

While the incident could have been carnage neither man nor beast appears to have been injured. In fact after their tumble, the cows got up and walked away, the Huffington Post reported.

If the video is not a hoax then it could be possibly be regarded as a Christmas miracle.
