Cue Indiana Jones theme music! The near-miss took place on the island in Keelung City, Taiwan, where heavy rains triggered a series of mudslides.

A driver narrowly escaped being crushed beneath a massive boulder that tumbled across a road.

A camera mounted on the dashboard of a second vehicle traveling behind the car captured the dramatic moment when the boulder, several times the car’s size, crashed down, stopping just shy of the vehicle.

Rocks began shifting at the top of a hillside, and the video – posted on YouTube – shows the drivers below apparently oblivious to the danger until debris started raining down. Elsewhere, 19 people were injured in a train derailment.
