Moscow's Crazy Roads: Out-of-Control Swerve to (Almost) Perfect Parking Job

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 impatient driver pulled a risky maneuver on a Moscow region road over the weekend trying to pass a car in the next lane, only to end up parked at the curb instead.

Footage of the incident shot from the dashboard of the car that got passed — and, in the process, sideswiped — shows a station wagon bolt forward in the neighboring lane, then try to switch lanes in a narrow stretch of space.

The station wagon clips the car with the camera, then immediately swings 180 degrees back across three lanes of traffic — right to the curb.

If it hadn't slammed into the back of a car already stopped there, it would have been a perfect parking job.
