Outrageous Rally Accident in Russia with VIDEO

A bizarre accident of what appeared to be an off-road rally stage held in Russia caught our attention this week as an out of control modified Nissan Patrol ran over two cameramen.

Though all spectators were standing behind the designated areas for competition, marked by a white and red tape, a couple of daring cameramen (and that's to say the least) walked on the rally course to get “the perfect” shot of the rally off-roaders as they went over an obstacle.

After the two cameramen rushed near the pillar of what looked to be an improvised bridge over a military ditch, the driver of one of the competing vehicles hit a concrete railing from the bridge and lost control. The footage we saw over at showed the rampaging vehicle plunging directly in the cameraman standing next to the bridge and knocking him a couple of yards away. It then jumped over the second cameraman and literally ran him over.

Now we don't have any details about the state of these two cameramen, but as you can see in the footage, they both manage to stand up by themselves and walkaway. The incredible luck, if we can call it that, of the second reporter who was under the wheels of the off-roader was that because of the speed the car jumped over him instead of treading on him.

What we found to be unbelievable was the lack of reaction from anybody. The vehicle's driver, who was most likely military or insanely criminal didn't even stop after it just hit two people to see if they were alive and breathing. To worsen the situation, none of the spectators reached for the injured reporters to help.
