ST. CLOUD, Minn., May 20 (UPI) -- A skateboarder in Minnesota just missed being hit by an oncoming car while performing a trick near a local road.

Jake Braun shared the video of fellow skateboarder Cody Davis sliding down the railing of a set of stairs before letting his board roll into the street.

Davis then continued into oncoming traffic and was nearly struck by a car before managing to hop off of his board at the last second.

Davis was visiting Braun and a group of other skaters in St. Cloud and commented on the close encounter in his own Instagram post.

"Thanks for showing us spots in St. Cloud and filming this today [Jake Braun] it was a close call," he wrote.

The car can be seen beginning to pull to the side of the road after running over Davis's board.
