    That was posted a while back. It's crazy. Does anyone know if there were fatalities for sure or not?

    The article states that here have been multiple fatal accidents on that same road. You would think they would put a concrete divider in there. I'm not familiar with the roads in Russia, but I assume that road is comparable to an interstate here in the States. I couldn't imagine driving down the interstate (especially in winter) with no median or divider separating the traffic lanes.

    Seen that a few times now and it never ceases to amaze. That vehicle just got obliterated. I'd never seen anything real that approached that.

    Also, I'm just kind of curious to know why the person who capture the scene was filming in the first place.
