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.
