Moscow's Crazy Roads: Hatchback Weaves Across Traffic Into Ditch

When this hatchback spun out of control on Mozhaiskoye Shosse near the Moscow region town of Zharovonki a few weeks ago, the driver narrowly avoided a side-on collision with oncoming traffic.

Despite snaking left and right across the three-lane stretch of road, the driver escaped unharmed from the incident after their car ended up safely in a ditch.

Take a look for yourself and see how close a scrape it was.

Editor's note: The motorist who captured the incident on camera said the year displayed on his dashboard camera was off by two years, hence the reading on the YouTube clip above.
