One driver’s good intentions led to an explosive collision — but at least one person emerged from the wreckage looking completely unharmed.
As a video posted to YouTube shows, wet conditions prevailed on a Russian roadway last Sunday, causing one truck to go off the road.
The video description blames the driver of the Nissan for what happened next.
The small SUV slows considerably, presumably stopping to help the first truck, but the “sharp deceleration” causes the fuel truck behind the Nissan to swerve into oncoming traffic.
The result: a massive fireball.
But perhaps the most shocking part of the video comes right after the explosion when the fuel truck driver hops out, apparently unscathed.
The video poster claimed that there were no fatalities in the collision.
The poster also noted that the music in the video is meant to replace the “tortured” sound (as one commenter put it) of the car’s windshield wipers.
According to the video description, the collision occurred between Miass and Chebarkul, near Russia’s border with Kazakhstan.
