Caught on Dashcam in Russia – Failed Overtaking Leads to Fatal Crash

Caught on Dashcam in Russia - Failed Overtaking Leads to Fatal Crash

It’s the same type of deal as in this video from Russia. An overconfident driver tries to overtake other vehicles but then notices a car quickly approaching from the opposite direction, he panics, tries to brake but has speed and the roads are slick, he gets into a skid and the collision becomes inevitable.

Caught on dashcam in Russia – the accident happened on February 24, 2013 on kilometer 733 of the Syktyvkar – Cheboksary highway in The Russian Komi Republic. A driver of VAZ-21099, driving towards the capital of Komi, near the turn by the settlement of Yasneg, tried to overtake a semi truck and drove into oncoming traffic, colliding with approaching Nissan Primera and then head on with Mitsubishi Carisma.

18 year old driver of VAZ died in an ambulance en route to a hospital. His three passengers as well as two people in the Carisma were injured.

Props to Best Gore member kac for the video:

    • when the fuck is Russia going to make more lanes. i hate how countries with so much fucking land elect to build a road with no divider and one lane each way, its like they want… to… kill… people…. ohhhhh

    • at least he did the right thing and indicated before overtaking. only problem, his piece of shit car didn’t have the hp to successfully pull off an overtaking maneuver.

  1. I’m convinced that some people should not be allowed to drive. Part of knowing how to drive should be the ability to gauge you’re timing with speed to complete a passing maneuver. Learning you suck at timing a pass can be hazardous to your health..

  2. Ha Ha, what a stupid bastard. Why would you try to overtake a vehicle that was going faster than your own, where’s the logic, even when he floored it he still couldn’t pass that truck, stupidly is one of the biggest killers.

  3. Holy shit!!! I thought asian drivers were the worst. I was clearly wrong. The ruskies take the glory of being the most dangerous drivers. Ill bet we’ll have another dashcam clip on a few minutes.

    • I recently watched a “dash cam accident compilation” on another site, mostly Russians. They get downright unpleasant after a car wreck…well, the ones who can move do…lol if they can walk at all they get out of the wrecked car and try to beat the shit out of the other drivers, even when they are at fault…its AWESOME! Road rage at its finest!

  4. you know, for living where they do, you’d think russians would be smart enough not to drive like assholes on roads that are very obviously covered with snow/slush/ice…

    • No shit. At least people in Detroit know how to tap a brake pedal every once in a while. These Russians must feel like they’re in a Land Rover when they get behind the wheel of any clunker.

  5. This is like the third accident in BG in as many days where a Russian on the highway tries to pass on the left and collides with either another vehicle or the center divider. WTF is wrong with these people?

  6. Woah!! slow down bro, there’s no need to be “Russian” to work, Next time get your lazy ass up sooner!! Oh wait that’s right you’re dead now …….
