This is the horrific moment a road worker is hit by a speeding car and knocked somersaulting high into the air in footage that was being livestreamed on the internet.

The tragic incident was caught on a live video online broadcast by a lorry driver who happened to be at the scene.

There is no report on what happened to the road worker but it would have been a miracle if he survived the accident near the village of Altukhovo in western Russia's Moscow Oblast region.

The man was seen in the footage walking across the road carrying an orange plastic cone.

He looked to have made it safely to the other side but he was hit head-on by a speeding car on the hard shoulder.

The force of the impact sent him somersaulting so high that he actually landed on the back of the car that hit him as it crashed into the back of a truck.

The lorry driver filming the scene pulled up behind where the body of the road worker was lying motionless on the hard shoulder.

It is not believed that the car driver was injured in the accident.

The footage was later posted on video-sharing platforms where it is proving compulsive, if disturbing, viewing.

Netizen ‘_Magneto_’ said: "OMFG, I feel so sorry for that guy", while ‘Tsygan’ added: "I am so annoyed by the young idiots that drive that."

Police are believed to be investigating the incident but officers have not yet commented.
