Nerves of steel! Watch astonishing moment Assad supporter dodges Syrian rebel missile that locked on his pick-up truck by waiting until the very last second before hitting the accelerator
This is the moment a driver dodged an incoming missile heading straight for his pick-up truck by waiting until the last moment before hitting the accelerator. The motorist displayed nerves of steel as the rocket flew straight past and exploded in a building behind. It is alleged to have taken place in Syria and the person in the white pick-up truck is believed to be a Hezbollah fighter, due to a yellow flag seen near the car. The tube-launched, optically tracked, wire-guided (TOW) missile was launched from some distance away and is seen heading towards its target for 24 seconds before the last-gasp maneuver.
