Driver narrowly escapes car fireball

You know how it is, you're quietly making your way along a frozen highway in Russia, chatting with your passenger about the tailback on the opposite carriageway.

Then a burning car hoves into view and you slow down a touch, half out of caution and half out of curiosity.

And it turns out that was a good idea, because just as you near the vehicle in question a huge fireball erupts across the road in front of you.

Phew, that was a close one!
