Boy Vs Car: Shocking Video Of Close Shave

A 12-year-old boy has survived a terrifying crash in which a car sent him smashing through the front window of a shop.

Footage shows Abraham al Saidi riding his bike with two other boys in New York as a black SUV veers off the road.

The vehicle ploughs straight into Abraham, driving him through the front of a barber shop as the two other boys on the street sprint away in shock.

The crash broke Abraham's leg and arm but he was otherwise unhurt.

"I got hit hard," the boy told NBC.

"It didn't hurt that much because I didn't feel it, because it came right away."

The crash happened in May but the footage has only just been released.

It is not clear why the driver veered off the road, and an investigation is under way.

News reports say the boy's family has taken legal action against the city, claiming that the stretch of road is dangerous.
