This is the shocking moment a woman was knocked down by a car after walking into the middle of the road while speaking on her phone.
The 33-year-old was captured talking intently on her mobile as she stepped out on to a busy road in Syzran, Russia.
She walked straight into the path of a passing car and was struck by the vehicle - sending her flying through the air.
The horrific incident was filmed on another car's dashboard camera and later uploaded to YouTube.
Footage shows the unnamed woman speaking on her phone while walking down a flight of steps at the side of the major road in Samara Oblast.
She can then be seen stepping on to road while gazing at the ground - failing to look to her left or right.
Seconds later, she is struck by a passing car and sent flying through the air, out of sight of the camera.
The woman was taken hospital with head injuries and a fractured leg following the incident at about 6pm on March 25.
She was given treatment and is now believed to be recovering at home.
It is unknown whether any action was taken by police against the woman or the driver.
