A woman had a lucky escape in Brazil after an out-of-control car crashed into her, sending her flying across the street.

Kelly Ribero Miranda, 42, is captured walking along a busy section of road in Brazil, before a car travelling towards her crashes into another vehicle.

One of the cars is sent spinning in Miranda's direction, before making contact with the helpless woman and flinging her out of the view of the camera.

Passers-by quickly sprinted to the aid of Miranda, but were amazed to find that she had only suffered minor injuries.

Miranda's husband, Valdeci Vilela Miranda, told local media: "Her brother works near to where the accident occurred and thought she had died because she fainted and there was a lot of blood.

"Thanks God she's okay. She's a bit sore, she has some scratches, she's lost a tooth and she's got to have a small operation on her arm.

"But given what happened to her, she's okay and she's talking."

Neither of the car drivers sustained any major injuries, with one checked over at a local hospital.
