Moscow's Crazy Roads: Careless Driver Smashes Into Truck on Moscow Ring Road

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.

An inattentive driver plowed his sedan into the back of an open-bed truck on the Moscow Ring Road on Thursday, causing the wrecked car to flip over.

Video of the accident, shot from a camera on a passing car's dashboard and posted on YouTube, shows a white sedan speeding toward the barely moving truck in the far-right lane of the highway.

The sedan does not slow down as it approaches the truck and barrels full speed into the flatbed.
