This dashcam footage from Russia shows a speeding Volkswagen Jetta driver cause a nasty crash after unsuccessfully attempting to squeeze through a gap between two trucks.

The clip, which was captured in the city of St Petersburg, shows the sixth-generation Jetta come speeding past the camera-equipped vehicle at the 18-second mark.

In an apparent attempt to bypass slower-moving traffic in the outside lane (in Russia, that’s the left lane), the Jetta driver heads towards the right. He or she, however, fails to squeeze through a gap between two trucks, making contact with one of the vehicles and sparking a nasty smash.

Although the Jetta was very clearly badly damaged in the crash, the uploader of the footage says the driver somehow did not sustain any serious injuries.
