Some people don't seem to care that we're 12 years into the 21st century, and prefer to use an outdated vehicle as a daily driver. This can have severe repercussions if involved in a crash, and that's exactly what happened in the clip posted below.

We've seen crashes take place in intersections before, especially in good ol' Mother Russia, but this one comes with a little more drama, since one of the cars involved caught fire on impact. Hit right into the lateral gas tank by what appears to be a GAZ Volga sedan, the truck turned over on its right side with petrol burning and leaking all over the place.

We don't know the outcome of the crash, but we do hope the truck driver got off lightly.
