Moscow's Crazy Roads: Runaway Truck Barrels Into Four Cars at Intersection

Editor's note: This video is part of a series. The Moscow Times will publish a selection of unusual incidents on roads in Moscow and the Moscow region in the coming weeks. Watch this space for more video clips.

A truck caused a major accident at an intersection during rush hour on Friday by apparently running a red light at full speed.

Footage of the incident — shot from the dashboard of a car that came just a few feet from also being involved in the crash — shows the truck slam into four cars waiting at a traffic light to turn left onto a wide road.

According to a description of the video, uploaded to YouTube by a user named Andrei Kosov, the truck's brakes had failed. The description also said that no one died in the accident. This information could not immediately be verified.
