Video: Nasty crash turns into mini-pileup & Russian trucker gives new meaning to 'handsfree'

Kick off your morning with a healthy dose of: “WTF, Russia?”

The first of our two videos features a Toyota Camry that starts a small pileup on a Russian motorway. Now, in fairness to the Camry driver, it looks like the van may be the cause of the initial crash as the van appears to slowly move over into the Camry’s lane without warning.

This causes the driver to take evasive action, which probably would have been fine on a dry road. However, as you can see from the video it was pelting down on the day in question and the slick ground caused the car to skid and crash into the other vehicles. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured...

Our second clip is a true ‘WTF Russia’ video, as we see a truck driver tipping along on a duel carriageway while steering with his feet. Seriously, who does this? And who is stupid enough to record it? We would say he was taking other drivers' lives into his hands, but he wasn't even using them.

Needless to say, this particular trucker really needs to get his hands (or feet) on the autonomous Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025.
