Fatal accident happened on the M-6 highway in Russia on August 14, 2013 and was caught on dashcam. A Renault passenger vehicle with three people on board collided head on with a GAZ truck – a collision that resulted in large explosion which engulfed both Renault and GAZ, and also slightly damaged a Chevrolet Niva.
It is believed that the collision was caused by the Renault driver who unintentionally swerved into the oncoming lane while trying to light a cigarette. Both him and his daughter died. His wife, who was also on board, survived. Everybody in the truck survived, although one passenger had a close call trying to escape the flames through mangled frame of the cabin.
Notice how everybody was so taken aback by the explosion, they didn’t know how to attempt to help the victims without also burning themselves. It took almost 5 minutes for the road construction workers to realize that water in the white paver, which they use for watering freshly laid asphalt, could be used to put out the fire with.
