Have you ever seen what it looks like to drive though a rocket barrage? A terrifying new video posted to the internet shows a car narrowly avoiding an explosion as a rocket explodes on the side of the road. Although the dashcam in the video says it was taken in 2012, RT reports that the video was recently filmed on by a dashboard camera in a car driving outside of Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine.
