A public transport bus from the Russian city of Kazan ran a red light last month, impacting a third-generation Audi A8 D4 and dragging it onto a pedestrian crosswalk. Thankfully, there wasn’t anybody directly in their path, as one pedestrian managed to run away in time.
Yes, it was raining, but judging by when the dashcam vehicle arrives at the light, it’s clear that the bus driver had plenty of time to slow down and safely come to a halt. Instead, they chose to accelerate before reaching the intersection in order to make that left turn.
As you can see, things didn’t go as planned and the bus the bus slammed into the left side of the Audi, creating a large traffic jam, which was kind of inevitable given the force of the accident and where it took place.
Also, had this taken place a little bit earlier or later, it might have hit any pedestrian who could be waiting at the traffic lights or going through the zebra crossing. We don’t know if anyone was injured in that crash, but we hope everyone’s OK and that the Audi‘s airbags and stiff body shell saved its driver.
