Another Pileup in Russia Overturns Toyota RAV4

Pileups are extremely dangerous, and since Russia, especially the northern part, has some of the harshest weather in the world, their roads are often full of snow, very foggy or extremely rainy, limiting both visibility and traction - they have lots of them.
It seems that due to this, and the fact that roads are not cleared of snow as comprehensively as they should be, the frequency of pileups is surprisingly high.

We have posted quite a few pileup videos from Russia, this winter, and this is just one more to add to the 'collection'. Apparently, in this particular video, a few vehicles had already collided, and the driver of the old-generation Toyota RAV4 just does`t see them in time.

By the time he does, he is unable to brake efficiently (snow and ice on the road surface), panics, pulls to the left, climbs the snow-packed guardrail, and finally stops on its roof. Not a particularly pretty sight, but at least nobody got hurt here (if the driver and passengers were wearing their seat belts, of course).
