A Taiwanese driver is lucky to be alive, as a huge boulder crashes down a mountainside, only narrowly missing his car. The action was caught on the dashboard camera of a vehicle following behind.

In the video we see a car driving along a street in Taiwan, and rain falling on the windshield.
Shortly afterwards, there is a heart-stopping moment as the mountainside collapses on to the road and a massive boulder lands and settles inches away from the car.
Reportedly there were no injuries in this particular incident.
However, in a related incident, a train has derailed in Taiwan on Saturday morning after a landslide. 12 passengers were injured, three seriously.
The train was heading for Kaohsiung with 250 passengers on board when it encountered the landslide at a tunnel entrance on Saturday at 7:33 a.m. Beijing Time.
This lead to the separation of the fifth and sixth passenger cars and derailment of the sixth, according to the Taiwan railway authority.
Reportedly incidents of this nature are fairly common. In 2009, at least 63 Taiwanese villagers were buried alive by mudslides triggered by typhoon Morakot when it ravaged the country.
