Improper Overtaking Maneuver Causes Huge Crash on Russian Highway

Driving on a highway requires slightly different skills to driving in town or on any other type of smaller road. On the highway, everybody drivers quickly and if there isn’t order and discipline, there’s a very big chance that something like what you see in the video may happen.
The driver of the car with the dash-mounted camera is overtaking another, slower car, properly, on the left side. However, at the same time the same car is being overtaken by another car, this time on the right - a very big mistake when it comes to highway driving (in LHD countries, that is).

The driver being overtaken seems to panic, pulls hard on the steering wheel, loses control and the result is plain to see. Whatever you do, always overtake properly on the highway, because at speeds of over 100 km/h (62 mph), it could all end very quickly and very badly.
