You Never Know What Will Come Your Way in Russia: Sideswipe Edition

We know that at least some of you missed our offbeat videos from Russia during the hectic press days of the Mondial de l’Automobile 2012 in Paris, so here’s a fresh incident from the land of matryoshka dolls and vodka. This video footage, captured by the victim named Vyacheslav Krekov and which was recorded on September 28, 2012 (and not in 2010 as displayed on the clip), shows the man driving his car on a road in Krasnoyarsk, the third largest city in Siberia. At about 20 seconds into the video, we see a truck approaching around a corner – but it’s not coming alone, as what looks like a long metal structure dropped from the vehicle’s loading area and sideswipes Krekov’s car. Luckily, the damages were limited to the car as the man made it out unscathed and was able to share his story withthe world.
