When it comes to high-speed collisions, it turns out that avoiding a head-on impact may be the least of your worries if the car you’re driving also happens to be unsafe.
This crash is brutal any way we look at it. Not only can it be hard to watch, but it’s also extremely violent and before we read up on what happened to those involved, we thought there was no way everyone survived getting flung out of that mess and into the path of another vehicle.
The incident happened near the cities of Volosovo and Gatchina in Russia, as five people ended up having to be taken to the hospital with multiple injuries. Apparently, the lorry driver received only minor injuries such as contusions and lacerations.
According to the description, there were four people inside the car, which for a brief moment looked a lot like a Lada 110. The three men, 19, 20 and 26 years of age, as well as a 21-year old girl suffered fractures as well as head injuries, but amazingly survived both the impact as well as getting violently thrown out of the car.
And to think that if the driver of the sedan didn’t force the overtaking maneuver, none of this would have happened.
