Ukraine has been in the news for all the wrong reasons in recent months. This video may not be quite the 'right reason', but the Ukrainians clearly have car accidents in style, with this lorry driver making a Dukes of Hazzard-style leap over a dirt bank at the side of the road as he swerves to avoid a car turning ahead.

With a dash cam fitted to the turning car, we can only guess just how brave the lorry driver's attempted overtaking move was, but he definitely gets full marks for execution as the lorry fully takes to the air and grazes the side of a house.

Apart from a hefty shot of adrenaline to the system it looks like the lorry driver miraculously manages to escape unscathed. Despite its encounter with the speeding truck it also appears that the car survived the incident.

What really grabs our attention though, is the amazing sound that the battered looking car makes when the video is sped up...Have a listen for yourself in the video below.
