An inattentive driver plowed his sedan into the back of an open-bed truck on the Moscow Ring Road on Thursday, causing the wrecked car to flip over.

Video of the accident, shot from a camera on a passing car's dashboard and posted on YouTube, shows a white sedan speeding toward the barely moving truck in the far-right lane of the highway.

The sedan does not slow down as it approaches the truck and barrels full speed into the flatbed.
