SUV Bullies Semi Truck Off Russian Road

Winter is back with a vengeance across parts of Europe, even though we're technically at the beginning of spring right now. Snow and sleet have caught some drives unprepared, resulting in numerous crashes, some serious, some funny.

This video shows that if they hit at the right angle, cars can do a lot of damage to something as large as a semi truck. The driver of a large Infiniti SUV loses control of his vehicle and crashes into the left side of the very truck he was trying to overtake.

This then results in the truck driver swerving off the road and into the ditch on the right. Icy road conditions definitely played a big role here, but the SUV was likely also affected by wind flowing at the very front for the truck.

We think the SUV hit the left front tire of the truck. When this happens, the steering wheel is sometimes violently jaunted in the driver's hands, causing a total loss of control.
