A driver who fell asleep at the wheel was lucky to escape with his life after his car was sent flying through the air after bouncing off a roundabout.

The incident happened in Romania and local media reported that the 22-year-old fell asleep as he approached the junction in the town of Braila on May 4.

In the video, the car hurtles several feet in the air after it failed to slow down, approaching the roundabout at full speed.

The driver escaped without injury as his car landed safely on all four wheels.

The car grinded to a halt when it landed, leaving behind trails and debris.

The driver will be prosecuted and has lost his licence according to 9News.
