A motorist in Keelung City, Taiwan came mere inches away from being crushed by a giant boulder — and it was all captured on video.

Video of the driver’s close call is going viral after being uploaded to the video sharing website LiveLeak.com and YouTube.

Mirror News reported that the incident was filmed in Taiwan.

The footage shows an enormous rock crashing down a hill toward a driver who swerves and stops to avoid falling dirt.

At 0:03, you can see the boulder (at the top of the frame) detach from the mountain. The boulder crashes on the road below at around 0:22.

The rock looks like it’s about to crush the car when it suddenly stops mere inches away.

The front of the car was smashed, but the driver was not injured, according to China Post.
