In Russia, road blocks you…

The victim in this video was simply minding his own business while travelling down a fairly normal looking street in Russia when suddenly a water pipe erupted underneath the tarmac forming a mound of rubble in the middle of the road.

Luckily for the driver of the camera car, the lights ahead had just begun to turn red forcing him/her to slow down. However, the same can’t be said for one rather unfortunate driver in the inside lane who was going a bit too fast to stop in time…

The cracked pavement brings the large Toyota to a complete stop and we’re sure the driver probably walked away with a stiff neck (and a hefty claim).
