A dash camera on a vehicle in Russia reportedly captured a shocking accident: a Van swerving into oncoming traffic and then launching and flipping in the air.

It is unclear what exactly caused the accident from the video, but according to the blog RU_CHP (translated by Google Translate) the van — an Opel Zafira, which is a mini-van — drove into oncoming traffic near the city of Bryansk and crashed into a fence, which launched it into the air. Both the vehicle capturing the event on camera and the van in front of it pull over and the driver of a truck comes running.

So far, no one has raised doubts about the video’s authenticity (although we’re obligated to point out that with viral videos that’s always the case). In fact, the blog reports police saying the 30-year-old driver, who died from injuries on the scene, might have lost control due to a tire bursting. A passenger in the vehicle is said to be in intensive care suffering a head injury, among others.
