Nail-biting footage posted to social media shows the man inexplicably jump from the bonnet of his parked car onto a busy road right in front of a speeding truck, forcing it to move into the next lane to avoid hitting him.

The driver blares his horn as the daredevil throws his hands up in the air and leaps in front of the vehicle before jumping back towards the side of the road, somehow unscathed.

Police arrested the unnamed individual after the video clip circulated on social media. According to the Khaleej Times the suspect is a teenager.

The General Directorate of Traffic confirmed the incident happened on a highway in Medina and said the case had been forwarded to the Public Prosecutor’s office. It added that the reckless individual had endangered his own life and the lives of others with his antics.
