Must have been a crappy carseat.  Either that or the impact was hard enough to rip the seat and toss the baby out.  I'm thinking that they did not have the baby in the carseat correctly.

seriously??? never ever ever ever ever heard of a child bein ripped out of a carseat durin a collision
Wow, how many collisions like this have you seen where the back end of the car gets ripped apart by a lorry?
Anyway, it seems the child was thrown out of the car, so more likely was not strapped in in the first place as I can not see how the parent had time to unstrap the child.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

mentioned this with my husband, but as he pointed out, if you see the impact it has on the back of the car it may well have ripped it out.

I agree with your husband, it could have been ripped out.. It may not have been a good enough car seat...

My original point was that no matter how good the car seat, the impact ripped the underneath and back end of the car out, but it seems the child was not in a seat as it had been thrown out, and the parent would not have had time to undo the straps if it had been strapped in.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Eh?  Which child are you referring to?  Everyone survived in the OP video.  It was definitely out of control but the baby flew out of the back of the vehicle whereas both of the adults came out of the front of the vehicle so I don't think the child was being changed at the time. Also, the baby was fully clothed.

Looks like negligence on the driver's part for driving too fast for conditions, possible negligence for not restraining a child properly into a safety seat, and carelessly handling someone who was just thrown from a crushed automobile although I can understand the impulsive reaction to grab the child with oncoming traffic bearing down.   Also worth noting is how quickly the passenger starts retrieving personal belongings from the road before checking on the condition of the child.  

Clearly excessive speed was the factor here when the car in question is already on the brakes and already out of control, yet still quickly shot ahead of the car with the video camera.   Bad on the foolish driver to drive so recklessly.   Guilty.

Thing is, the driver will most likely not be prosecuted as happens often in Russia. Their attitude to driving comes from a very macho or Darwinistic view towards other road users: the strong survive and the weak get crushed, although Darwin would be proud of some of the actions driver's have taken in Russia (thanks to well over 100 video compilations on Youtube). That and woefully corrupt traffic police who readily accept bribes.

There is also a reason why we see crashes like these more often coming out of Russia than other places is because of the prevalence of insurance fraud, where people either reverse into the car behind them and claim they were rear-ended or pedestrians purposefully running into traffic to claim some sort of payout.

Best way to save a baby in a car crash, throw him or her out the window into the middle of a busy road.  In winter.  Because then at least the one year old BABY can walk away unharmed.  Ahem.
