VIDEO: Astonishing scenes as car flies through air in fatal Russia crash
The internet has thousands of videos taken from car dashcams on the roads of Russia – but one posted this morning is a new challenger for one of the most dramatic ever.
The incident happened on May 19 in the Kaluga region of Russia. Local media said the timestamp on the video was wrong.
The footage shows a car accident on the Bryansk to Dyatkovo road. The driver of an Opel Zafira car loses control and the vehicle hits a concrete and steel fence before rocketing skywards. The 30-year-old driver is reported to have died on the spot, while passengers remain in critical condition in hospital.
Local police said the accident was probably caused by a burst tire.
