Car with four kids riding in trunk nearly hit by semi truck (VIDEO)

In this video from Romania, a car is driving down a highway with four children riding in the trunk. While the children appear to be having a good enough time, the conditions are obviously anything but safe. In fact, the children are using their arms to apparently hold up the door to the trunk.

At about 40 seconds into the video, things nearly take a dramatic turn for the worse.

As the car's driver pulls off to a dirt road along the side of the highway, a semi truck suddenly appears from off-screen, just barely missing slamming into the back of the car where the children are. Thankfully, everything appears to end safely, as the video ends with the car heading down the side road.

But one hopes that Romanian authorities will be tracking down the owner of the vehicle to hold him or her accountable.
