This is the moment the driver of a milk tanker cheats death after the vehicle overturns and bursts into flames as it slides along the road.

The man, whose name has not been released, managed to scramble free of the vehicle after the accident near the city of Kremenets in western Ukraine's Ternopil Oblast region.

He suffered burns to his face and arms and was rushed by ambulance to a nearby hospital for treatment to his injuries.

But he was fortunate to survive the dramatic accident which was caught on CCTV security cameras at the scene.

The footage shows the milk tanker hitting a pothole just as it was being overtaken by a van pulling a trailer.

The impact sends the tanker swerving towards the faster vehicle forcing both drivers into evasive action.

But the milk tanker then loses control as it swerves back towards the roadside and overturns.

The vehicle slides along the road upside down, spilling much of its load of milk, before bursting into flames just as the tanker slides past the camera.

There is no report on the milk tanker driver's latest condition - however his injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

The footage of the spectacular accident is proving popular with viewers after it was posted on video-sharing platforms.

Netizen ‘Evgeniy Sedikh’ commented: "I feel really sorry for the driver, he is a simple employee, who works a lot."

‘Valentin Sho’ said: "If there was no pothole, there wouldn’t have been a problem out there", while ‘olyechka’ added: "OMG, poor man."
