One lucky person

I know this page is not in English, but look at the pictures and and you will agree that he was lucky.

He was able to open the door himself and stepped with out any injury, the medic anyhow chose to sent him to the ER for scanning to ensure he was OK.

Speed was approx 130Km/h ~ 80Mph

Only 30cm ~ 12" from hitting him directly in the drivers side.

Its amazing just how strong a tree actually is, even a relatively small one like that one. Had this been a Micheal Bay movie, he would have knocked that tree down with minor fender damage.
